Folk Art Flag

By Kathybarbro @KathyBarbro
Folk Art FlagGiven that folk art is created by untrained artists, everyday items are often used for it’s creation. I’ve had this wooden flag idea for awhile, and finally got to try it out with kinders today. PREP: I glued two sticks together with white glue to make a “flagpole”. I did this about 20 minutes prior to class so they could set up.
1. Students used liquid watercolor paint to paint 4 sticks. They used a papertowel to dab them dry.
2. Two sticks were placed on paper, and I gave a squirt of white glue on each as shown.
3. Students started with red, and alternated 4 red sticks and 3 “white” across on the glue. Some stick was left on both sides.
4. White punched paper stars were glued on navy blue rectangles of paper, 1.25" x 2". A glue stick works best any extra dries clear.
5. The “flagpole” is glued on the bottom left stick with white glue. All is left to dry for about 20 minutes. A quickie drawing lesson filled the time for me.
6. Before students left, I used a good adult scissors to trim off the extra stick on the right. I liked the homemade look to them, and just in time for Memorial Day celebrations.
