Fox in the Snow

This workshop was inspired by a fox collage by Paige Balcer. You can see it here:

We began by blowing white paint through straws to create snowy trees. I then provided students with pre-cut fox heads, bodies and tails which they covered in torn tissue. I touched some of them up with a little orange paint (just to help them along a little bit) before they added eyes and noses. I think the results are really sweet!


  1. Louise, thank you for sharing this with me. I'm glad my art could inspire others to create something with their hands. You are doing a wonderful thing!


  2. You have been awarded the Liebster blog award from me!

  3. My goodness, these are GREAT! Have you ever thought about writing an article about one of your successful projects for a K-12 art-education magazine, such as Arts & Activities? We'd love to hear from you. Our readers are interested in adaptive art projects and ideas they can use in their classrooms.
