Using Tempera Paint and drawing supplies I create artwork that I refer to as Hidden Images.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: The Steps Are Easy
Begin by folding a sheet of paper in half. I used 9"X12" arches paper. Open the paper and lay it flat.
Drip several smallish drops of tempera down the fold of the paper and re-fold. Use maybe 3 or 4 colors, too many colors tend to get muddy.
Re-fold the paper and gently press the paint out towards the edges of the page.
Unfold again and let the paint dry.
Step 2: Finding Your Images
Look into the mixed paint and try to detect an image that you can enhance.
I use an assortment of drawing and mark making tools for example, colored pencils, markers, watercolors, and/or cray-pas.
This is a wonderful project that I enjoy with my students it is appropriate for all ages.
