Art Prompt: Sandpaper Painting

Children love tactile experiences. This is a fun way to create the look of a true sand painting without having to buy colored sand. Not to mention, it’s less messy! This sweet turtle is an artifact from 1978 when a young art teacher to be was only 7 years old, proving that some good ideas last! Pro tip: use acrylic or tempera to get full saturation and choose a rougher grain sandpaper for visible texture. For more art activities and prompts, visit our Creative Classroom.
