Stained Glass Design Art

In my previous post, I shared with you our stained glass easel starter and this process really is almost exactly the same idea only for this process our Pre-kindergarten age children designed their own stained glass artwork without my assistance…

We began the entire process of making stained glass art and completing the stained glass easel starter by reading the book “I See a Song” by Eric Carle…

To read this wordless book, the children took a picture walk with me. We went page by page and talked about what we could see on each page of colorful designs…

The colorful designs had a similar appearance to stained glass windows and other stained glass designs and went along well with the stained glass art designs the children spent time making….

To make their own stained glass art designs, the children began by cutting different lengths of tape and placing the tape in strategic or random) places on their piece of cardboard…

Each stained glass was a uniquely designed piece of artwork…

After the children completed their tape designs, they used liquid tempera paint to fill the empty white spaces of their designs with color…

The children could paint their stained  glass tape design anyway they wished. It didn’t matter if they painted over the tape or not as we planned to pull the tape back off the boards once the children were done…

And once the children had filled all of the white spaces (or most of them) with paint, they were invited to tear the tape off of their cardboard (we didn’t wait for the paint to dry)…

Most of the children were able to pull the tape back off their boards but some of the children requested a little help here and there. Asking for help depended on how much tape a child used or how stuck the tape was to the cardboard…

Once all the tape was pulled off the boards, the children could use the paint to touch up any places that might have torn if they wished. Some of the children did touch up the paint and a couple of the children decided they would like to paint over the white lines that were left behind after the tape was removed…

Every child’s stained glass design was simply beautiful…

What kind of tape did you use and can you use any kind of paper like construction paper or easel paper?

We use paper tape but no matter what tape I use, there is always a little tearing – especially if you let the tape and paint dry on the page before pulling it off. Masking tape or painters tape should work fine on any heavy paper but you just have to test it out:)
