Frankenstein Kids


I found this super adorable art lesson HERE on the Artventurous Blog. 
She links to THIS website (artforkidshub) which has a tutorial on how to draw Frankensteins's monster. My Grade 3 kids watched this tutorial and drew along for a practice. They loved it!

Then I re-drew it on my whiteboard step-by-step again for the slower students.


After their practice drawing, they drew their good copy on thick 12x18" white drawing paper.


Then they outlined their drawing with a Sharpie.


Then they outlined all the way around their figure with a yellow wax crayon. 
Then they added some electricity lines.


Then they colored in their figure using construction paper crayons.


Finally- phew! - they used watercolor in the background.


This took about 3 - 40 minute periods in total.
Some Grade 3 results- ta da!

Thank you for the really good instructions. The pictures looks great, with a classroom of mainly boys I am sure they will enjoy this.
