Old bedsheet, Tempera paints, Paint brushes, Sponges, Squirt bottles
Take artistic ventures outdoors and transform an old white sheet into a monumental canvas.
Start by soaking an old sheet in water and then hanging it on a clothesline or draping it over a fence.
Get out various tempera paints and applicators — sponges, paintbrushes, squirt bottles — and go at it, creating pictures, tic-tac-toe grids, or just colorful designs.
You can also mute and mix colors with a water-filled spray bottle. Whenever you don’t like what you see, simply hose down the canvas and start over. For art on a smaller scale, try the same techniques with a pillowcase or an old T-shirt
