Coffee Painting



When our art teacher told us to bring coffee granules for our next meeting, I was perplexed. Coffee for art class? Even old coffee granules would do, she says.

It turned out we're going to use coffee to paint. Our teacher asked us to make different shades from coffee. I learned that the longer the coffee is steeped in water, the darker the color becomes.

As you can see, my first attempt at coffee painting is very simple. With more practice, I hope I can come up with better artwork like the one below which I saw online.

You don't need to be limited by using a paintbrush. You can also use your fingers to spread the leftover coffee grounds after removing the water, on paper to create effects. My teacher said we can also use white crayon to trace our drawing and then just paint over with the coffee paint. The drawing will still be seen through the naturally stained paper.
