Let’s learn how to make this fun Black History Month Easy Art Project! This activity is so fun to make. I turned on Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, and Ella Fitzgerald while we created this beautiful art piece! We love simple projects. Let’s get started!

Black History Month Easy Art Project
- 1 Sheet of Construction Paper.
- White Crayon.
- Paint Brush.
- Printable Trumpet.
Begin this awesome musical art project by drawing a trumpet or other instrument on a sheet of dark construction paper. I asked my son to draw a trumpet for me. I printed it, and cut it out. Then I traced it onto the construction paper. Alternatively, you could print the trumpet onto card stock and add the glitter to that directly.
Once you have the instrument drawn on the construction paper with a white crayon, you can create your glitter glue mixture. I used 1/4 of a cup of glue and 1/2 a jar of red glitter for this project. Add glue to a small bowl, then add glitter. It will be a thick mix.
Next, paint the glitter glue on the construction paper. Try to stay in the lines of the instrument. We used a paint brush that already had some red paint on it.
Before the glitter glue fully dries, sprinkle more glitter on top of the paper. This will fill in any clear spots on the trumpet or other instrument.
After the glue has fully dried, carefully tap the excess glitter back into the glitter jar.
Now, you can add music notes or leave the project as is.
This would be a fun project to create with a music staff or several smaller instruments too!
We enjoyed dancing to great jazz tunes while we created our own art. I hope you enjoy making your own sparkling music!
