Every child is one of a kind, as is every piece of art. I am a big believer in NEVER write on a child’s art work. It should be their own and untouched, or God forbid, not something that an adult draws and they color. That kind of stuff makes me cringe. Anyway, I broke my own rule and wrote on all the Wee Warhols’ canvases. And guess what. It is one of my favorite projects I have done with my students. I was inspired by a motivational poster that I saw on Instagram, or maybe Pinterest. Simple white background with the plain text- One Of A Kind. I prepared each canvas with these words, all a little bit different. I used a thick black Sharpie marker to write the text.
The best part of this project was seeing what each child did with their canvas. They were all very different. Some of the kids spent a lot of time on this project, while others preferred the minimalist approach. I supplied them with markers, tempera cakes and dot markers at first. (Oh, this post includes affiliate links.) Then they added acrylic paint. Each masterpiece was indeed One Of A Kind.
I hope that you make some One Of A Kind artwork. If you do, please share a photo in the comments below. I would love to see what your child or students come up with.
