Blow Paintings

This is my most requested art lesson of all time!  This lesson starts out with cutting drinking straws in half.  We water down water paint until it is very drippy.  I usually place large drips of paint at the bottom of their paper and let them go crazy.  Controling the paint by just blowing isn't as easy as it would seem.  The students soon learn to blow hard and move direction quickly to get the desired thin branch-like drawings.  They usually get light-headed, too.  It is a fun class...
