Come paint along with our Gallery Assistant Christina DiPaola as she walks you through creating fun folded butterfly paintings step by step! This super easy craft is perfect for preschool and primary students, but is fun for all ages.

These butterfly symmetry paintings come to life by adding blobs of paint to one side of a paper, folding the other half over, rubbing it with your hands, opening up the page to reveal a funky symmetrical painting, and cutting it out to turn it into a beautiful butterfly!

Materials Needed:
Paint brushes
Paint containers
