Stick painting V3

8 and 9 year olds.
This is an art project we undertook a few weeks ago, but I have taken ages to get around to photographing the installation. As you'll notice, some are coming to grief.
It was a very engaging project. We loosely based the art around Aboriginal designs. The wood is driftwood from the river mouth. It has been nicely dried by the sun. I painted them all white to save time and to give the children a 'blank canvas'. The children created their designs in bands around the sticks. This way they could do as many as time would allow and still look complete.


  1. I've been wanting to try this! Looks like it was a big success. I can't find good sticks around here - too barky.

  2. Thank you. Hope, time for a trip to the seaside.

  3. LOVE THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't know if I'd be able to collect that many sticks...I have 100 students or more in every grade level. I wanna try it though. hmmmmm

  4. Thank you. I waited until I had a few kids around at our place and we went off on a stick collecting adventure, very successful.
