Pig Day

Art Lesson
for Pig Day

The students will mix paint to create different shades of pink.


  • Red and white paint
  • white construction paper
  • paint brushes
  • pig pattern, if desired



  1. Give each student a piece of paper to cut out a pig.  If desired,  copy the pig pattern onto white construction paper and have the students cut out that pig.
  2. Give each student some red and white paint and a paint brush.
  3. Allow the students to mix the paint to achieve the shade of pink they would like their pig to be.  Discuss with the students what makes the shade lighter or darker.
  4. Once the pigs are complete, look at all the different shades which have been created.  The students may want to sequence them from lightest to darkest.
  5. Display the pigs in a pig pen in the hallway or somewhere in the classroom.  The pig pen may be a fence cut out from brown butcher paper.

Other Lesson Ideas

  1. Have the students create piggy banks.  They could be made from paper mache', shoe boxes, or plastic bottles covered with torn tissue paper and adhered with a mixture of glue and water painted on the top.
