Fine Art Transfers

This was easy, and made us all feel like great artists! 

You will need:
An art example (printed or photocopied)
Optional- Crayons, markers, colored pencils or paint for coloring-in at the end

First, let the kids choose a piece of artwork.  The piece can either be found online then printed, or photocopied from a book.  All of the big museums have websites with online catalogues.  Another option is to just Google the name of an artist or painting, then click “images”.

Turn the printed (or copied) art over, and color the blank side with a pencil.  Make sure you really color with a thick layer.

Turn the paper over, and place it over a blank piece of paper so the “penciled” side is against the blank paper.  Tape the two pieces of paper together at the top, so that the top paper will not move around.

Trace over the artwork with a pencil.  You’ll want to really press down.  When you’re finished lift the paper.  You will have an outline of the artwork.  Go over the lines on the “new” version, and color in however you want.  

 Have fun, and let me know how it works out!  blog@klinecreative.com
