Bells and Christmas have a long standing history together. From church bells that ring at midnight on Christmas Eve to the sound of sleigh bells in the snow, the sounds of bells and Christmas are a cherished memory for many.  In many parts of the country today, the ringing of bells can still be heard every Sunday, and throughout the rest of the year for various religious celebrations – one of the most popular of course, being Christmas.

This tutorial will show students how to draw a pair of Christmas bells, and then color them to add some dimension. Shades of yellow do the job particularly well (even if just using crayons) as they can add a natural looking shine.

To add some art fundamentals to the lesson, this drawing is also a good example of BALANCE, one of the Principles of Design. While not being completely symmetrical, all the shapes on one side are also on the other, creating a very visually balanced work of art.
