Easter Card

Easter-card (1)Here’s an idea for a pretty Easter Card. Grid formats are fun to play with so feel free to make your own variation of this drawing.

1. I started by folding a piece of 8.5″ x 11″ watercolor paper in half. To make a quick grid without a lot of measuring, give each student a 1″ square of thin cardboard. They are to place the square in each corner, and trace around it as shown in the first diagram.

2. With a ruler, the students then connect the lines to complete the border as shown.

3. Spring and easter details may be added.

4. After the drawing is complete with a pencil, the lines are traced with a black ballpoint pen and the shapes are painted with watercolor. I used Prismacolor watercolor pencils to make my sample.
