“Squirrel Monoprint with Sharpie Details”
The date for the release of my very first art book, “Sharpie Art Projects for Kids” is coming up on Nov. 15th. To make the count down more fun, I’ve gathered some of the talented bloggers (whom are also contributors in my book) to share yet another favorite Sharpie project with you. For the next five days, if you follow each of our links, you will be able to see what some experienced teachers and bloggers have created with these markers. I’ve had a peek at them and know that you’re in for a treat. For starters, here is one of my favorites that is actually in the book, a hand colored soccer ball. If you color the stitched hexagons with the diamonds as shown, you end up with a really amazing work of op art.
Also, you can enter to win one of three books I am giving away over on Facebook. Visit Sharpie Book Giveaway.
OP ART SOCCER BALL
1. Color the pentagon shapes with a dark Sharpie so that you can hide any writing or logos.
2. Draw the diamonds as shown in each hexagon with a Sharpie and then fill them in.
3. Play ball! Or display your masterpiece as a work of Op art.
