Tips for creating art on dark paper

Get creative using black paper and bright colours.

Black paper is brilliant for creating dramatic nighttime art. 

  • Experiment with chalk and bright paints that really stand out
  • Use natural materials like real leaves to make a collage 
  • Create spooky, moonlit scenes using white pen
