Rock Painting in the Classroom
: Tempera poster paint or an acrylic. The Tempera will offer a temporary coating while most acrylics are permanent. Some of the budget brands may not be permanent. Read the label first.
: Rocks in interest shapes and sizes and also you may use big flat leaves.
: Plastic table top or you can cover a table with a plastic sheet.
: Paint brushes
: Glue or PVA
: Apron and a cover sheet or newspapers – plus paper towels – for clean-up.
- Try to pick clean looking rocks, you may need to wash some of them.
- If you have acrylic paints use them but be careful as the better brands are permanent.
- Make use of the autumn leaves that are lying on the ground.
Flat printable leaves are best. They make brilliant colourful artworks.
