This amazing nativity project needs only paint and paper. It’s easy to do and really helps convey that Jesus is the reason for the season.
To start with, tape down your paper to get a nice finish edge. Some of you may find this a bit tedious but it really makes displaying your art work so much easier and much more professional looking.
You can point out where you want your white center to be, using parts of the template. You will be using the white of the paper for this. Then, mix some white paint with your blue paint to make a light blue. And start painting around your white center.
Continue painting now making your blue darker by mixing in some purple or maybe a little black, until you are right off the page. Now you can use the template or try to make your own. Trace out your figures on black paper. Then, use the yellow paper for the star.
After that, mix up a very dark blue, try to make a shade that you haven’t already used in the painting. And there you go! You will have an amazing piece for Christmas. Give it a try.
