Saturday Art Challenge


Paint Splodge Art!


Welcome to the final Art Challenge of this blog. I hope that you have enjoyed the various activities that we have explored since March when this blog started.

Just for fun as a final challenge I thought it might be nice to end having fun with paint splurges, or happy accidents with a paint brush. I created these flowers following working on the pigeon painting last week, they were made using surplus paint and seeing what patterns could be formed with the paintbrush. They formed really nice flower patterns:

Your Task: To look at the photographs below and have a go at creating your own patterns and paint splurge art. Look at the way that the flowers, foliage and blackberries are made up of circles and symmetrical shapes. See if you can copy them with your paint brush.

Once you get started get creative. See if you can make repeating patterns to form a picture. Try adding two colours to the paint brush at once to see what effects you can create.

Have fun! And thanks for all the support with this blog. Don’t forget if you would still like to be involved with eco-writing you can email me at to be added to the mailing list for future ideas and projects.

Keep up the creativity.

Best wishes,
