Visual journals are always my students' favorite project of the year. It is a space for them to express themselves, experiment with materials, and take a break from regular projects. It is a great project for middle school and high school age students.
Every Friday I introduce a new material and technique my students can use in their visual journal. One of the coolest techniques is creating bubble paint prints. With only a few ingredients students can create bubble patterns on paper. Once dry, they can collage them into their visual journals.
This worksheet is a step by step guide for students to follow when doing a bubble paint prints. This guide is a good way for students to figure out what step is next, without having to ask the teacher over and over.
On the back of this how to worksheets are two bubble paint print examples. If you have the resources to print this on the back of the worksheet for each student, it is a great visual guide. If you are tight on color printing you can project this image while explaining the project or print a single version students can look at.
