Artist Trading Cards for Kids

My favorite artist trading cards for kids project involves starting with a color photo and creating a world around it using only a thin black marker. After all, if a drawing looks interesting before it even has any color, you’re on your way to a really nice work of art.

MATERIALS

 

DIRECTIONS

  1. Print out a sheet for each student, preferably on card stock or good drawing paper.
  2. Challenge students to create a detailed world in each. Pencil is good to start, then trace with pen.
  3. I use a paper cutter to cut the cards out after students are done. It’s easier to draw on the larger format.
  4. Slide all the cards in a trading card sleeve, which you can find online or even at Staples.
