Spooky Paintings

Since we had a half day last week, my students did their first Halloween art project of the month! I found this great idea for Spooky art on Crafts for All Seasons and I could not WAIT to try it. The project has to be split up into two days. The first day the students paint the sunset background, which dries overnight.

Day One: Sunsets
The next day students paint a spooky foreground using black paint. The results are pretty fantastic.

My only mistake was using far too thin paper. With all that paint, the paper started to curl. Mental note for next year, use heavy painting paper!


  1. I love this! I think I need to try this with my kiddos! =)

    I am happy to be your newest follower. If you get the chance, I would love for you to hop over and visit me. =)
