Paint and Peel

  • Paint
  • small canvas
  • painters tape

  1. Each participant will have paint, a canvas, and painters tape.
  2. They will tape their canvases however they choose. Wherever they put the painters tape will remain the colour of the canvas!
  3. Then participants paint over the tape using different colours and patterns.
  4. While the paint is drying, don't let anyone see what you've made - a true artist never reveals their work until its done!  
  5. When it is dry, everyone will take the tape off and reveal their masterpiece!
  6. Boom, you're an artist!
