Tape Resist Painting


4th graders use masking tape to design scenery for the 2nd Grade Community Celebration
-- depicting Urban, Suburban, and Rural settings. 


I loved making the airplane with tape. I started by making the bottom wing and then I moved to the hull and then eventually started to make the upper wing. When I finished the wings and hull, I started to make the windows. I just copied the JetBlue design for their planes, except I didn’t put any blue on it.
I also think the blimp that has a big 2 on it was pretty good, even though I and my friend Nick made it. I had lots of fun making the Urban, Suburban and Rural boards. My favorite one is the urban board with the plane that I made. I also like the train that’s in one of the suburban boards that I worked on. I love all the boards. - Christian S.

    1. We used acrylic paint on giant foam boards -- very light & fairly durable. Thanks for inquiring, Swenny!

  5. How did you get them to draw such large shapes and things seem to be in fairly good proportion. I love this collaborative project and the use of foam board is perfect

    1. Hi Peg, thanks for your comment! This project began as an experiment (hah, what doesn't!) with one student making an airplane using masking tape on a large foam board, and another adding buildings below. They didn't use pencils to sketch or plan, I just let them "have at it"... I find that works best. Here's another great experiment with tape:
