Abstract Art Party

This is a little late in posting, but I had to do a post about my daughters 9th birthday party. I asked her what she wanted to do for her birthday and she came up with the idea of doing an abstract art party seeing as that's something she really loves. 

It turned out to be an extremely fun party. We did all sorts of messy abstract art and the kids took home canvas paintings they had made themselves.

Some of the kids said as they were leaving that they never knew art could be so much fun. In my mind, that's a successful party! 

Painting Canvasses. We used silly string, mesh tape, masking tape, forks, etc. to add texture to their paintings and interesting designs.

Completed paintings. It was so much fun to see each child's unique personality come out in their art.

Sadly I don't have pictures of each different type of art we did, but we rolled out a big sheet of paper and did a sheet of round designs using balloons dipped in bowls of swirling paint, a sheet of hand and finger art and a sheet of splat painting. Then we laid them out on the trampoline to dry.

And finally we had a decorate your own cake activity. Ashlyn wanted me to cover a cake in plain white frosting and they would all gather round and paint the cake with colored frosting. I laid the cake on a cakeboard cut like a paint pallette and put circles of colored frosting round it like paint. 

A happy birthday girl!

These are some of Ashlyn's abstract paintings. She has a gallery in her bedroom.

    Best case scenario, we can concur in all conduct on how something is seen with the faculties and additionally the psyche's impressions (like how we are influenced by something). Other than that, it is unrealistic to really realize that we see anything the same way.
