Learn how to draw King Tut, and then paint him with the blue and gold and sparkle that he once had, thanks to a little metallic tempera paint.
This tutorial is great for a history lesson, but King Tut is also just plain fun image to paint. The gold tempera is pretty inexpensive and adds a little bling that students all seem to love.
This is also a great project for practicing symmetrical drawing. To make those color stripes on the headwear work, the same number of stripes need to line up from the left to the right. A little extra care needs to be taken when drawing them.
