Puffy Paint Party | Free Family Funday | June 2022

This exhibition celebrates artists working on the margins of society with an irresistible urge to create and for whom making art was as essential as breathing. It is a study in inclusivity and diversity, artists passionately engaged, finding solace in their art, creating a private reality, sometimes imbued with spirituality. Several of the artists had difficult backgrounds, suffering from mental and developmental disabilities. For them, art was a kind of therapy. More importantly, it was artistic freedom and a sincere and intimate means of communication.

Project Steps

1. Using a pencil, sketch out the design you would like to create on your board.
Begin applying paint, squeezing the bottle to form the outlines.
Be careful with how hard you press down, test out making a dot or line on a scrap piece of paper before you begin.
Finally, fill in the empty spaces with more color! You can even layer the puffy paint for a 3-dimensional texture. Let dry overnight.
