Sketch your flag idea. Before beginning the project, encourage your students to think about the type of flag they want to create. Then, they can sketch their ideas on paper to help them visualise what they want to paint. This will also help them decide which colours to use for their flag.
Apply masking tape. Using masking tape, create the outline of the flag on the paper. Encourage your students to think about the different shapes and lines they can create with the tape. They can create stripes, triangles, rectangles, or any other desired shapes.
Paint inside the tape lines. Using the 5 Star: Star Tempera paint, have your students paint inside the tape lines. Encourage them to experiment with mixing colours and creating different textures with the paint. Remind them to stay within the tape lines to create a clean, crisp edge.
Remove the tape. Once the paint has dried, carefully remove the masking tape to reveal the flag design. Your students will love seeing their designs come to life!
Add finishing touches. Encourage your students to add any additional details or finishing touches to their flag. They can use paintbrushes or even their fingers to add texture or create unique designs.
