Art Lessons For Kids - Outer Space Crayon Resist

Updated on July 28, 2011

Art in Outer Space

Art is all about exploration. That is why I love doing projects with themes of outer space. It allows for even more imagination and creativity.

This project is great to do anytime, but is especially effective after a visit to a science museum, or while studying planets. Its very easy and kids love it!

Materials You'll Need To Make this Outer Space Art Project:

  • One sheet of thick white paper that can hold paint (at least 8.5" x 11")
  • Crayons (take out the dark colors)
  • Black tempera paint, which can be watered down a bit
  • Paint Brush (of the larger FLAT variety, to paint black paint with)

How to Make your own Outer Space:

  1. Using Crayons, color in whatever you envision in your outer space: planets, suns, moons, galaxies, aliens, spaceships, etc.
  2. Carefully brush the black paint over the entire picture in strokes going the same direction. If the paint is watered down correctly, the crayon will come through. If it is too grey, your paint may need to either be a bit thicker, or let it dry and go over it once more.
  3. Let dry.

Clean Up:

Use a damp cloth with mild detergent to clean up any excess paint or glue. Make sure to wash out your brushes in warm water with mild soap so they last for many paintings to come.If you're using nice furniture to make your project on, cover it with plastic or newspaper before you begin.


And, remember: Art is a practice. The more you do it, the better you get!
