Paint first, and then write poetry! Express original ideas with picturesque words and appealing textures!
On oak tag, use Crayola Colored Pencils to sketch a picture that could inspire you to write poetry. Choose a topic that lends itself well to rough textures, pearlized surfaces, or glittery areas. Consider depicting cultural artifacts, feelings, science topics, or recent events.
Cover your art area with newspaper. On a paper plate or other palette, swirl a tiny amount of Crayola Tempera Paint with your choice of Crayola Tempera Mixing Mediums—Pearl It! Texture It! or Glitter It! The swirls will create extra interest in the spaces you paint.
Paint your drawing. For best results, let areas air-dry before painting next to them. Try to use all three textured media. Fill some spaces with just paint for contrast. Air-dry your painting.
Which areas of your painting are highlighted with a Crayola Tempera Mixing Medium? Consider focusing on these when you draft your poem. Will it rhyme? If so, what rhyming pattern will you use? Edit your poem and write a final draft on lined paper. Display your language and visual art project. Textures will really be the center of attention!
