Tips for creating art on dark paper

Get creative using black paper and bright colours.

Black paper is great for creating super contrasts and sparkly pictures. 

  • Use chalk, glitter and bright paints to make a midnight scene 
  • Try natural materials like leaves and abandoned spider webs 
  • Can you create a spooky collage?

What sort of picture did you make? Don’t forget to clear a space on your fridge or wall!
