I have done Mexican bark painting and used brown sacks and have used brown paper from the large rolls. We wrinkle it up first before drawing and painting. Crizmzac Supplies has a nice unit on this subject that you can order from them. It comes with a video, posters and lesson plans. You can even order a real painting from them at very reasonable prices.

Subject: Mexican bark painting
Does anyone have ideas on doing this with 6th grade students? Do grocery sacks work using tempera paint? Any suggestions would be appreciated. ---
