Spin Art

Spin Art.
Summary:

Students will create wild works of spin art using paint, paper and a salad spinner.

What You Need:

  • salad spinner (or a spin art machine)
  • bottles of paint (washable tempera)
  • small paper plates 6″

What You Do:

  • I set my salad spinner on a table in front of the class and then I call students, one at a time, to come to the spinner. The other students draw whatever they like on a piece of paper while they are waiting their turn.
  • Students pick 3 colors and I pour them onto the paper plate that they have placed into the spinner. Then they get to spin!
  • They have such fun! No one knows what the outcome will be until I lift the top off of the spinner and then the ooohs and ahhhs begin!
  • These turn out beautifully! It is so much fun listening to the students talking about what they see in their pictures. I have never seen a bad one!
  • Try this and your students will love it!
