What is Process Art for Kids

Process art for kids is a type of art where the focus is on the process of creating the art, rather than the finished product. This type of art is often open-ended and allows kids to be creative and expressive. There are many different types of process art that kids can do, such as:

  • Painting
  • Drawing
  • Collage
  • Sculpture
  • Performance art
  • Installation art

Process art is a great way for kids to explore their creativity and to learn about different art materials and techniques. It can also help them to develop their fine motor skills and their problem-solving skills.

Here are some tips for doing process art with kids:

  • Provide a variety of art materials and let kids explore them.
  • Don't be afraid to get messy!
  • Encourage kids to be creative and expressive.
  • Don't judge their art.
  • Celebrate their creativity.

Process art can be a lot of fun for kids. It's a great way for them to express themselves and to learn about art. So get creative and let your kids explore the world of process art!


Supplies:

  • Purple Paint
  • Green Paint
  • A paper plate
  • A pencil eraser
  • A wine cork
  • White paper


Begin by stamping one purple dot, then on the next row, stamp two. Repeat thru 4 to 5 rows of grapes.



Repeat until your paper has plenty of purple bunches of grapes. 



Now grab your wine cork and dip into the green paint.


Fill the blank space in between grapes with green dots for leaves. When you are finished your paper should look like this.



So pretty! Let this dry and display it somewhere in the house. You could stick it on the fridge, but this turns out so cute you might want to frame it.


This is a perfect spring or summer craft for kids of all ages. It is easy, and needs no special supplies. I know you will have fun with this process art project.

Aren't these apples the cutest thing for little hands? All you need is a few colors of paint, a sheet of paper and a dried up sunflower head to make these with your kids. This is great for younger kids.


We visited the farmers market and purchased some sunflowers a few weeks earlier. After they had started to dry out, we plucked the petals off and were left with the heads.

Harp and I thought it would be fun to paint with them, so I grabbed a few bottles of cheap paint and some paper. This is what we came up with.

Supplies:
Paint in red, green and yellow
Paper Plate
Sunflower

Pour  paint onto a paper plate. You need about a quarter sized drop.

Press your sunflower head into the paint and press it onto the paper.

Repeat as desired.
