Music Tape Resist Art

Tape resist art is great to do with any age, even with babies, and can be done with any medium.  J usually prefers dot markers, but paint, crayons, or markers work well too.  In addition, pretty much anything can be made using tape.  We have done surfboards, a Father's Day gift, and a Canadian flag recently.  Clearly, this type of art is versatile and since tape resist art has been a popular activity around here lately, I am always looking for new ideas.  So I decided to try and create some music symbols with the tape and I am so happy with the end results.

To begin, I taped out two music symbols (a treble clef and an eighth note) on a piece of easel paper.  I then taped the paper to the table so it wouldn't move.

K was napping, so J did both of these art pieces.  His chosen medium, as usual, was dot markers.  When dry, peel off the tape to reveal the design.

I absolutely LOVE how these turned out!  They are so bright and colorful.  I am hoping to find a frame to fit each of them so that they can be hung in our play room in the music area.
