Painting On Fabric

This exercise was really fun for my students because they were able to experiment with painting in a new and unique way. I gathered many different tools and materials for the students to use to paint on muslin fabric. Their tools consisted of burlap, forks, empty toilet paper cylinders, rope, plastic mesh, paper cup cardboard holders (each one has a different pattern inside), and the bottoms of egg crates... to name a few. Students were given different color paints and a sampling of tools and materials. These are some of their paintings... interesting and beautiful.... each one unique.
