Art "Quilts"

No sewing involved! These beautiful "quilts" are created with paint and -- if you wish -- collage papers.

Materials: Acrylic paint (mixed with a bit of Dick Blick's "Blockout White" for increased opacity) or Acrylic Gouache; paint brushes, 8 x 10"canvas panels. Optional materials: collage papers

Simplify: younger artists may need extra time for this project, or help creating borders around the squares  // Elevate: pre-cut 2 x 2" collage papers to glue down instead of painting, use additional collage papers for elements inside the squares

Ideas for your quilts: flowers, sun-moon-stars, animals, faces, fruits, insects...
