Process art – Spinning for spring


spin art celebrating spring | marmite et ponponProcess art is when you’re enjoying the creative process, trying or inventing new techniques, introducing new elements from daily life, and the least you care about is working for the end result. In few words, process art is when the process of creating matters more than the result product.

Kids love process art, naturally they enjoy the journey more than the delivered product. They unleash their creativity, being all messy and mostly happy. Discovering and experiencing is the key! I was searching for a fun way of painting to start the spring/Easter decoration. I wanted Nady to be excited about the activity and enjoy the preparations. I came across the spin art paint.

Without thinking twice i knew this is the type of activity that Nady will love. I got a

  • salad spinner
  • vibrant colors paint
  • card boards (cut in 18x18cm square)

… and here we go!

Put the paper inside the salad spinner, squirt some paint and spin!

We repeated many times with different colors combination and each time was more beautiful. In spin art paint we didn’t just enjoy the process but we were in love with the end product as well! Nady didn’t want to stop.

We kept them overnight to dry before mounting them on foam boards.

Nady was so happy he couldn’t wait to hang them on the wall. We both enjoyed this process art and the surprise effect with each time we open the salad spinner to discover a new painting. We decided to do all our decorations this way!

The next day we repeated the same process with smaller pieces of paper to create a spring garland!

  1. Can you tell us how you placed them on the foam board, what kind of paints you used, and how you hung them up (stuck to wall or nailed on)? They look wonderful!

    • Hi Sareen. We used kids mala paint from ikea, but you can use any acrylic paint suitable for kids. We chose vibrant colors. 3M spray glue to mount them on foam board and UHU patafix to hang on wall, they r very light you dont need nails, plus it’s convenient if you want to remove them later without any damage of the wall
