String Stitched Dot Lesson

Amazing Art Projects Inspired String Stitched Dot Lesson

Image Source/Tutorial: Cassie Stephens

Materials required: Cardboard, colourful yarns, scissors, tape, crayons, black paint, texture tool, pencil or sketch and needle.

Difficulty level: Easy

Description: Rather than lanterns, home décor using plants, or newspaper craft we can try different models which will make us unique among crowds. Here we have used four colours and you can limit this to any number of colours. Your Lil kids can do this but give them the plastic needle to stitch the yarn. Make different patterns and hang them on a light background wall.

Procedure: Take the cardboard, and fill that with a green colour crayon. Now paint red colour above the crayon-filled cardboard. Before the paint gets to dry, with the texture tool, make a design in this. If you want, split some light green paint on this cardboard. Use the compass (which is used in math class) or the lid of any jar to get a big circle shape. Mark dots at an even distance like in the clocks. Here we have made 16 dots. Make that in the back side(free from paint) of the cardboard and pinch a hole with a needle at each marked dot. Like the radiant which starts from a single point and reaches many different locations, we are gonna do this string craft. Select 1 point among 16 dots and poke that with a needle attached with yarn on the backside. Don’t make a knot at the starting point of the dotted hole, as that will block the way, with the tape secure it without disturbing other holes. From one point, make a straight line to another point and come back to the initial point. Repeat this process until you cover all the holes. This way you can create one radiant. If you want to make more radiates with several colours like shown in the above image go ahead. For reference watch this. Create an art gallery at your home.

Paper Plate Dot Art Project For Preschoolers

Paper Plate Dot Art Project For Preschoolers

Image Source/Tutorial: Tales From The Travelling Art Teacher

Materials required: Cardboard, A4 sheet, Paints, paintbrush, cork and scissors.

Difficulty level: Easy

Description: From toddlers to college students can do this craft. The perfection and the model may differ based on their maturity and age level. If you are a teacher or head of the school then give this as a task for International Dot Day and inform the students that you are gonna display their work on your classroom walls. This classroom project would help kids to collaborate with others, explore creativity and improves hand-eye coordination.

Procedure: Cut the cardboard in a round shape and paste an A4 sheet on that. Can also use a rectangle or square shape without cutting cardboard and paper but it would be less attractive than a round shape. Allow your students to draw any pattern that comes to their mind and let them paint it. Some students like me may expect sample drawings or ideas to initiate the process. So show them the mandala designs, Wassily Kandinsky artwork, metal relief, sand mandala, stained glass window designs, Rectangle patterns and more.

Dot Mandala Rainbow Art Project

Amazing Dot Mandala Rainbow Art Project

Image Source/Tutorial: Delicate Dots Andrea Moebes

Materials required: Canvas, nail dotting tool, paint and Q-tip.

Difficulty level: Moderate

Description: This looks beautiful, isn’t it? The materials used here are less but you need should be careful in creating this design. You should be patient till you complete this. If you think you are gonna work on each swirl colour separately and then move on to the next swirl colour then you’ll be a mess. Because there is more chance to miss smooth texture.

Procedure: Take the black canvas(can work on any colour) and in the right measurement, make a cross mark with a white pencil and draw lines between the space. So that you will get an asterisk symbol. In the centre place black paint in a medium size. Start from any drawn line, place various colours of paint in a small size with even space. Start to remove the white drawn mark layer by layer as that will spoil the final beauty. Here we have used 8 colours in 2 ways. You can use different colours for 16 swirls. If you wanna do like in the given image, start placing the same colour in opposite lines and continue the pattern. If you are done with one layer, move on to the next layer by increasing the size of the dot mark. Place black colour in-between black and red in 2nd layer to make a swirl, that’s the hack here! Repeat the process until you are done with all layers. You can leave at this stage or you can decorate even more as shown in the image. Try making different patterns and designs.
