Our second day of scribble art involves creating a custom coloring page.  Get out a piece of paper and fill it with a big swirly scribble with overlapping lines. Then color the spaces created by the lines. Voila! A piece of abstract art!  (Fig 1) 

Variation Ideas:

  • Draw vertical lines at various widths apart and slanted starting at the bottom of a piece of paper.  Then draw a swirly scribble or shapes going through the vertical lines (Fig 2).
  • Pick two colors and fill in every other shape formed by the intersecting lines for artwork reminiscent of the 1960’s! (Fig 3).  If you start with a piece of colored paper, you only need to use one color. 
  • Or use only shades of green to celebrate St. Patricks Day!
