Flying Free: Crayon Batik Kite Visual Arts Lesson for Kindergarten to 2nd Grade
You will create a decorative kite to help celebrate the arrival of spring, summer or fall. In this project, you will learn how to imitate on paper the fabric decorating technique from Java called batik. The process uses crayons to draw and color a design on white paper, that is then wadded and painted with black to make the cracks that are typical to batiks.
