Egyptian Portraits and Cartouches


My Grade 6 class completes a unit on Egyptian art every year. We do a portrait of King Tut or Cleopatra and then make a cartouche of our name. 


It's easy to find cartouche patterns/templates online. HERE for example.

My kids used a hieroglyph handout to translate their name and wrote it vertically on the handout. Then they coloured it with whatever media they wanted. Then they cut them out.



On heavy white paper they had to paint or colour some sort of border design.


Once finished the cartouche was glued on top of the border paper.

These are terrific - the border makes it look very special. I am sure the kids were excited to spell their names in hieroglyphics!
