Gingerbread House Painting

I saved this Gingerbread House watercolor painting project for my 2nd and 3rd graders so they could practice making a house with “form” and not just “shape”.

Gingerbread HouseA one-sided house has shape, but drawing two sides is the beginning of adding dimension, and later, perspective.

MATERIALS
• Multi-media or watercolor paper
• Sharpie, black, fine tip
• Crayons
• Liquid watercolor paint

DIRECTIONS

1. Draw the house in pencil on watercolor paper and trace with a permanent marker.

2. Color the candies, windows and chimney with crayons.

3. Draw lots of snowflake stars with a white crayon, pressing firmly.

4. Paint the house and sky with liquid watercolors.

This house was painted by Nareh, a 3rd grader.
