When you think about things to draw, you might not think of drawing sludge, but it is a great drawing idea for kids. First, it's GROSS! Kids love GROSS. Who doesn't? My students love this tip because they can't believe the strange thing that it is this first video. Also, after learning this, kids instantly start drawing rivers of toxic waste which leads to more creative drawing adventures. Check it out! This drawing idea for kids leads to other art project ideas.
This is also a great way to use art to help you get ideas for writing. In a later video, I'll even show you how to draw a toxic sludge monster.
