Let me share our party with you.
Setting up: brushes/paint/paper/water/paper towels(lots and lots of paper towels).
The girls made mixed media art. They cut or tore scrapbook paper and gessod it to their painting.
I first showed them some examples of mixed media art and took them step by step through the process.
Lots of bright and colorful paint was used for backgrounds. One tip I can share with you is to keep wipes handy. If you make a mistake with acrylics, you can generally wipe it off right away before it dries.
The girls really enjoyed using paper as the dresses and flowers in their paintings.
After the girls were done with their paintings, we laid them on the floor to dry and we moved on to eating our french style foods.
We had mini croissant sandwiches, eiffel tower cookies, petits fours, lemonade and chocolate cupcakes.
Candle time for the birthday girl Abby!
After the girls ate I helped them iron on their appliques on the aprons while Abby opened gifts.
Now for the little artists and their masterpieces:
I had so much fun with the girls! I will definitely have more art parties in the future. Maybe the next one will be for adults!!!
