The Soaring Butterfly...
It's a new year which means new inspiration, lots of motivation and a whole lot of art making. I felt it was well suited to start with a butterfly inspired art project because of the beautiful symbol it holds. I love butterflies and use it as a prominent symbol in my personal art practice, because it is a symbol of change, courage and the beauty of evolving.
This art piece is simple, vibrant and a lot of fun to recreate.
OTHER SUPPLIES: Items needed that are not pictured. Water container, paper towel and palette paper for paint. Marker and google eyes(optional) for drawing and eyes for butterfly.
Step 1: Paint Paper Roll
Step 2: Cut out Wings
Step 3: Glue down wings, paper roll and pipe cleaner antennas.
Step 4: Attach chosen embellishments on wings and google eyes. Decorate background as desired.
I hope you really enjoyed this activity. Wherever the year takes you, may it be as colourful and beautiful as a rainbow. Remember to not be scared to spread our wings and fly. Explore the world around you, you never know the inspiration you may find.
