St Patrick’s Day Art Projects in Hartford
Wisconsin Goes Green with Festive Irish Art Activities
At Creative License®, we celebrate St Patrick’s Day with extra green paint for all our art projects. Our Hartford, WI, studio has activities appropriate for artists of all ages and skill levels. From shamrocks to leprechauns, we have all the arts and crafts you need to celebrate this St. Patrick’s Day. Just don’t forget to wear green!
Shamrocks, Leprechauns, and Rainbows, Oh My!
Shamrocks are a very easy shape for kids of all ages to paint on canvas or ceramic figures. Just grab some green paint and get started painting traditional three-leaf and lucky four-leaf clovers.
Fun St. Patrick’s idea for parents: Paint a ceramic plate with a field full of shamrocks. Hide one four-leaf clover. On St. Patrick’s Day, use the plate to serve dinner and challenge your kids to find it for a special prize!
Leprechauns are a famous part of Irish folklore. Known for hiding pots of gold and granting wishes, the leprechaun has become a symbol of luck. We have ceramic figures of little gnomes for any child who wants to paint their very own leprechaun to bring them good fortune this St. Patrick’s Day.
Speaking of leprechauns, where is his pot of gold? While green is the color most associated with St Patrick’s Day, the rainbow leading to the pot of gold is another fun motif for kids.
St. Patrick’s Day Activities for Young Kids
Handprint art for St Patrick’s Day is very popular with toddlers and younger children in preschool or kindergarten. Let your little ones create their very own shamrock on a ceramic plate, canvas, or wood board. They’ll love the chance to get a little messy.
Older kids in elementary and middle school can still get in on the fun. Let them design their own leprechaun on a canvas or paint their favorite ceramic animal in green. If your child has a birthday close to St. Patrick’s Day, consider hosting their birthday party at Creative License®!
Art Opportunities for Adults
There’s no age limit on art. Wood boards are great for recording inspirational messages. Find your favorite Irish saying and paint it directly onto the board. Take it home and hang it up anywhere in your home.
Impress your favorite lass with the gift of fused glass jewelry. Our Creative Consultants can help those celebrating the religious aspects of St. Patrick’s Day make their own cross from fused glass. Children ten and up are welcome to try this fused glass art as well.
