How stone paintings can inspire your children. Usually if the Teachers who teach cultural art lessons ever in learning to ask children to paint using paint. The commonly used painting media is paper or canvas. Well how about occasionally using other materials so the results will also look different and unique. Try for example using media from rocks. Take a look at the following picture. Some oval and slightly flat stone pieces are used for painting media. Good is not the result.
How to Prepare River Stone Until Becoming a Media of Painting.
Here are the steps that can be used by art teachers to prepare students using stone times as a medium of painting.
Invite students to go to a place where there are many stones, and of course free to take. For example a river. Taking children straight to the field or river that is around the school will be very fun for them. But of course this idea is only an option. If the teacher and the teacher are more happy when their time is spent in the classroom, the assignment to bring your own rocks to the classroom is also nothing wrong. Inviting the child directly to the location has several advantages, for example the students will also be closer to the environment and perhaps the teacher can also relate his painting lessons with other fields such as IPA, for example by telling how the process of formation of stone times so that the shape becomes likely to rise with smooth surface. Or, the teacher can also explain about the use of stone economically, for example for building materials and decoration materials.
Teach students to choose the right stone for this painting medium.
The criterion of a suitable stone for example has a shape that can be placed so that the stone is firmly positioned and stable (not easily overturned), hard so that it is not easily broken, has a unique color, or a unique shape, and of course has enough surface Wide to provide ornaments or paintings from paint.
Invite students to wash the stone so that it is clean.
For this brush is required and perhaps also laundry soap. This needs to be done because often the stones in the river or elsewhere (piles of stones in the field) need to be cleaned with special so that all the dirty parts (eg on the part of the hole is really clean). Clean stones will also add to the beauty of their work later.
Invite students to dry the stones that have been selected and cleaned.
Each student may choose 3 or 4 pieces of stone for his painting media later. Dry the stone for example under the hot sun so that the process can be faster. Do not forget to put a stone on a clean base such as old newspapers.
For the next step of course the students will start to add paintings on the stone times so the choice.
In order for them to paint in the appropriate part, teach them to find a suitable position on the stone for a painting. Not all sides of the stone will be painted, because it is only done on the upper side if indeed want to imitate the paintings like the photo above. But of course not wrong if students want to paint on the entire surface of the stone. But this requires a more cautious and gradual step because it is impossible that all sides and rocks can be painted at a time.
Give examples of patterns or models of painting, for example just a simple mosaic like the photo above, or it could also paint ethnic nuances. Even the type of painting can be developed into other forms, for example in the form of graffiti or whatever the child likes.
Use acrylic paint or other paint that is good to apply on the stone surface. Suggest to first use a white base paint on the surface you want painted so that the painting they make becomes more bright and prominent.
Well, for a better paint can be his idea like this ya. Painting the eyes on stone times. How nice and cool is not it? Oh yes, the stones that have been painted can be used as decoration ornaments in the classroom, and certainly very unique is not it?
