Gingerbread Cookie Painting

gingerbread cookie paintingThis gingerbread cookie painting is brightened up with colorful crayon details. Kinders can concentrate on just making large, symmetrical shapes while first and second graders can try adding a shadow to give their cookie more dimension.
• Multimedia or watercolor paper
• Crayons
• Liquid watercolor paint
• Cardboard cookie template (optional)
PREP: For kinders, I used cardboard templates for students to trace. I’ve found that large curvy shapes like this cookie are some of the hardest things for them to draw, so a template helped them all get off on a equal footing.
1. Students draw or trace their cookie and then add details in pencil.
2. The art is traced with a crayon, and thick bands of color are added to resemble fat lines of frosting. Encourage lots of white lines as they always brighten up the art.
3. To make a shadow, students color a black edge on one side of the cookie as shown.
4. Students use brown liquid watercolor paint and fill in the cookie, over all the crayon.
5. Lastly, the background is painted with a contrasting color.
