This witch tutorial takes the focus off of what her face may or may not look like, and has fun with just her stockings and shoes. Those curly-toed boots make an adorable silhouette, and are good symmetry drawing practice too.

Getting those curves to match takes a bit of time and practice. Most students though get so excited about drawing these funky shoes that they don’t even realize they’ve just figured out how to draw symmetrical curves, which is one of the harder things to do.

Please note that if you would like to try this with younger classes, say first and second grade, I highly recommend that you make a boot template that students can trace and flop and trace again. While you may have a few students that can “see” how to draw the boots on their own, I found that on average, only older students tend to be able to work this out on their own. Not to worry though, they lesson of symmetry is still there, as they will learn by flipping their template to make a right and left boot.

This project has been a favorite of mine for years, and works in all kinds of media. May favorite though, as shown to the right, is with crayon and watercolors. I used real watercolor paper and liquid watercolor paint to get the bright colors shown here. The supplies cost a little more, but are well worth the investment, if you ask me.
