Keeping Summer School "Groovy"

One of my favorite things in this world is tie dye.  I thank the Art of Ed for this lesson.
I loved it. The students loved it. 
I had some students make over 5 designs discovering something new each time.  

I did require each student to make me one that I could keep so we could have a groovy hallway display when school is back in session.  
It'll be rad.



Here's some of my summer tie dye!

  1. I love these, I am a huge fan of tie dye! Will be teaching a Oil Pastel class at our homeschool co-op this fall. May I ask what type of paper did you use?

  2. Love the end result! Just wondering about instructions and steps? Oil pastels an old erasers? Could you elaborate a bit on how you did it? Thanks! :)

    1. We used a 8in squared paper. It's best not to work too large! I showed students a couple of designs, but really it was pretty much up to them to pick the colors they wanted. They won't want to stop making them!
