Mixed media painting/collage is a very exciting painting project for primary school children appealing to those as young as five years of age. This tutorial presents an opportunity to use your imagination to create a composition in collage form, using different materials and paint on canvas.
This project can be approached in different ways using various themes for inspiration. The theme for this particular project is based on a magic garden—a garden where anything is possible. Leaves are big and colourful, birds are taller than trees and flowers are vibrant and dance about in the wind.
Students are required to observe plants and flowers and encouraged to sketch out their observations and ideas onto paper before starting on their canvas.
