DIY Colorful Dandelion Artwork For Kids
- A White Sheet Of Paper
- A Black Sketch Pen
- Paint In Five Different Colors
- A Pair Of Scissors
Step 1: Cutting a Sheet Of Paper
Take a white sheet of paper and cut it into a big circle. Now, take a black sketch pen and make a big dot at some distance above the center of the sheet. Make smaller dots around the sides of the big dot as shown in the picture below.
Step 2: Connect The Dots
Connect all these dots starting from the big dot in the middle to the small dots around it. The dots should be connected in curved lines making the shape drawn in the picture below.
Step 3: Making The Stem
Make slight dots at the ends of these curved lines. Make a slightly curved line at the bottom of the big dot in the middle connecting the dot with the bottom end of the sheet. Outline it twice to make it thick and prominent.
Step 4: Painting The Fingers
Take some lavender paint and dip your index finger in it. Don’t forget to have some fun with it.
Step 5: Stamping The Lines
Stamp five of the ends of these curved lines with your painted finger as shown in the picture below.
Step 6: Painting All The Ends
Take some green paint and stamp the ends of three curved lines similarly. Five of the curved lines with yellow paint, four with red, three with green, and four with orange paint. See the picture below for reference.
Step 7: Make Some Of The Seeds Fly
Draw a small line near the circumference of the circle and make four smaller lines at the top of this small line with a connected base and join the base with the line below. See the picture below for reference. This is going to act as the flying seeds around the dandelion.
Step 8: Making More Seeds
Make eight more seeds in a similar fashion near the circumference of the circular sheet.
Step 9: Painting The Seeds
Paint these seeds with your fingers using different colors as shown in the image below.
Finally, Your Dandelion Artwork is Ready!!
Take a green crayon and start making lines at the bottom circumference of the round sheet, resembling grass. This completes the dandelion art with all its seeds and stems.
The dandelion art we just made has colorful seeds which is an improvisation you made through art. This made the art stand out and more beautiful and colorful than the original. You can hang it on the walls of your home or paste it into your art book. You learned to paint with your fingers and draw using the technique of connecting dots through lines. Use these techniques in other forms of art taking inspiration from your surroundings like we did in this tutorial. It is suitable for kids starting on the journey of art and crafts like kindergarteners. Keep learning and keep practicing your art to reach perfection. Good luck.
