Foot Craft Friday: The Scream by Edvard Munch

IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION

At this time, our office continues to be open to new and existing patients. We use hospital-grade sanitizers and are taking measures to ensure patients maintain social distancing by not having anyone wait in our reception room with others. We are continuing operation in an effort to keep patients out of the urgent care clinics and hospital emergency departments, which increases the chances of being exposed to the virus. We have x-ray and ultrasound in the office to prevent you from having to go elsewhere.

For those patients who cannot or wish not to visit the office, we are offering private video telemedicine visits. Simply call the office at 713-785-7881 and ask for an e-visit and we will be happy to get you set up for an immediate appointment. You can also request an appointment through our website.

This foot print craft is pretty enough to hang in your living room!We all hope that our kids will appreciate great art: why not pique their interest with a foot craft inspired by the age-old favorite, Edvard Munch’s The Scream (courtesy of The Pinterested Parent)? Warning: this one’s not for beginners.

Supplies

  • Various paint colors
  • Various sized brushes

Directions

  1. Paint the heel of your child’s foot in a light peach tone & then paint the rest of the foot in navy blue.
  2. Paint in the arms & hands, leaving space between the main foot and heel print.
  3. Paint the bottom slat of the fence & then the bridge by painting diagonal brush strokes in browns, yellows, oranges & blues. Paint two more fence slats behind the screaming man.
  4. Paint the fence beams & then paint in between the fence in shades of blue.
  5. Paint a blue curve like shown & paint inside of it in different shades of blue following the curve. Use a thin brush to paint in light strokes of white & orange. Paint a blue curve as seen toward right edge of page & paint inside of it in different shades of blue, following the curve.
  6. Use a thin brush to paint in light strokes of white & orange. Draw a double curve in the horizon. Don’t worry if you mess up—it all blends in the end.
  7. Paint in a small pool of yellow. Paint around the yellow in a darker shade of blue.
  8. Paint in black swirls & accents in the blue. Paint white & light blue swirls around the yellow.
  9. Outline the top of the double curve in yellow & mimic another yellow curve parallel to it. Paint in between the swirls in oranges, light blue, white & more yellows until you have finished the sky.
  10. Paint in the screaming face on the man to finish off your painting.
