Spring Art Ideas
Spring is a massively inspiring time to all of us and in my opinion after the cold and bleakness of winter it’s a much needed way to perk everyone’s spirits back up.
There are so many different things to be inspired by over spring, from cherry blossom trees and emerging flowers to rainbows, Easter and even bugs.
These ideas are great no matter is you are looking for some spring art activities to try at home or if you need some art lesson ideas to try out in your preschool or classroom.
The art projects that I’m sharing today appear in the same order as they are in the collages below to make it a bit easier for you to find the ones you like the most.
There’s more ideas than you’ll just see in the collages though so do take a look through, over time this is a resource that I’ve added to as although it was only meant to be 15 ideas there are so many gorgeous spring art activities around that I couldn’t help but add to it.
