How to make Arctic Art
What you’ll need…
Thick white paper (watercolour paper if possible)
Paints and paint brushes
Black paper or card
First, wet your paper with a sponge. This will help the colours spread and bleed across the paper.
Looking at the pics (top of page) for inspiration, apply paint to the wet paper to create a swirling Arctic sky lit up with the Northern Lights!
Try swiping some of the wet paint away with a dry sponge to create streaks of light. When you’re happy with the effect, leave it to dry.
Using a piece of black paper the same width as your painting, draw the outline of some pine trees or mountains using a pencil.
Carefully cut around this outline, then stick it onto the painting to finish off your magical scene!
Top tip: if you really put your art skills to the test, see what different things you can include in your silhouette! Maybe a bird on the tree top? Or a wolf on the mountain?!
