Craft Spotlight: Architecture Paper

2014-07-14-FeatureImage

Draw houses and fill in the details with Architecture Paper! This special paper takes the best elements of a building, and spruces them up with a range of gorgeous designs. Switch out a brown door for a red door, add planters beneath the windows or place a statue in front. 

There’s lots you can do with the Architecture Paper. Most of the elements are made up of basic shapes that you can use to introduce young students to geometric concepts.

IMG_2548We used a large roll of brown art paper to provide our crafting friends with a backdrop for their artwork.

IMG_2543We drew several different “house” or “building” shapes and then asked the crafters to fill in the details using the Architecture Paper.

IMG_2539The crafters cut out the basic shaped architecture elements and pasted them onto the brown paper.

IMG_2538It was easy to spread on the glue using our fantastic Goo Spreaders. Simply pour a bit of white school glue into a plastic container to allow groups of children to use the glue from one station.

To add some dimension to their cityscape, we asked the crafters to glue down cotton balls, which represented clouds in the skyline.
