This is a fantastic Halloween project that I saw on TV one day when I was at home on a sick day a few years ago. It was on the British art kids show "Art Attack" (is it still on??) I remember scrawling down the instructions on a scrap of paper thinking in what a great lesson it would be for my junior high students. You could use it to focus on Victorian architecture, for example. Or Gothic or castles, etc.
The instructions and steps are posted HERE on my original post.
You simply need 12 x 18" construction paper and India ink.
My students use laptops to find reference materials online.
Here are some Grade 7 - 9 results from a couple of years ago.
