Christmas Art Inspiration

-
I took a tour of my school yesterday and rounded up a whole bunch of beautiful art pics. I hope you enjoy them and are inspired to try out one or two for yourself:)

Glittery Christmas tree art

I think this first one is especially beautiful. The funny thing is, it's actually a "happy accident". The Grade 4 teacher told me that they started out with just the trees (no glitter, no background). But everyone decided they were too boring, so they brainstormed ways to jazz them up. The kids came up with the idea of adding the glitter and the snowy background.  I think they're absolutely dazzling!


Doily santa for Grade 1

The doily Santa came from my room!


Christmas stain glass art project

Christmas stained glass art project

These beautiful "Peace Paintings" were created by a Grade 5 class. They remind me of stained glass windows, and come to think of it, that's quite possibly what they're meant to represent. All of them were equally as beautiful!


Footprint snow globe art project

This sweet little snowman globe (do you see the footprint?) was made by a Kindergarten student!


Christmas carolling art project

I think this was from a Grade 2 class. Don't you love the snowflake on the tongue?


Painted Trees art project

The photo I took doesn't do these trees justice. They're MUCH prettier in real life. The trunks are ripped paper and the grass is painted paper that was then cut out and glued on.


Reindeer art project

Gotta love these sweet reindeer, especially the one with the eye roll! Haha!


Popsicle stick christmas ornament

The snowman ornament was also from a Kindergarten class. So sweet!



splatter paint umbrellas

water colour autumn leaves art project

These last two, obviously aren't Christmas related, although we HAVE been getting TONS of rain. I mean, seriously, it's been crazy. But I just thought they were too lovely to leave out.


I also have photos and directions for some really gorgeous tissue trees, last year's Christmas Art Tour, AND some printable Christmas books.


Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Lovely! My favorites are the doves and leaves. Lately, I've enjoyed running beneath the falling golden leaves here in Texas.

  3. I always enjoy your school art tours. I do the snowflake on the tongue one, but I'd never thought of using a sticker. That is a sticker, right? Brilliant.
