Blown Dye Art Lesson:
LEVEL: Pre-school and Primary.

Working with dye is colourful and fun.  This is so easy too. This lesson is about blowing dye with a drinking straw.

You will need:
: Paper
: Food Dye or school art dye – primary colours are best – red, yellow and blue.
: Straws
: Apron and a cover sheet or newspapers – plus paper towels.

Let’s get started:
Set up a table for each group of children. 

Each table should have two colours of dye only to start with as artworks can get messy quickly.
Using just the straw in a controlled way pick up and lift a colour of the dye and let it drop on the the paper. Making a nice little puddle.

Try not to put too much on the paper. Leave plenty of white space.
When you have enough colour blow the dye all over the paper with the straw.

If you are using more than one colour allow the colours to mix into one another.
Later you can try using all three primary colours.

Allow to dry.

-          Try not to over soak the paper.
-          Make sure there is enough dye for blowing around.
