More about Mary Blair

Mary Blair is most well known for designing concepts for animation for Walt Disney Studios during the 40s and 50s, including Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland and Sleeping Beauty.

Her color work was like no other, and she was sought after by Walt Disney himself to bring her talent to various films and projects around Disneyworld. After she left Disney, Blair became an illustrator of children’s books, some of which remain in print to this day.

This tutorial takes some Mary’s styling of flower drawing, and stacks them in an organized way. It not only shares some of Mary’s creative thinking, it allows students to experiment with some new shapes, and asks them to draw large to fill up their entire sheet of paper.

  • Drawing Paper. Don’t substitute it with copy paper or construction paper. The surface will get fuzzy, erasing might cause holes, and the colors will generally not look as bright.
  • Stabilo Markers. The large pack provides lots of fun color choices, several shades of each color, including a few choices for skin. The tips are perfect for coloring, and there’s even a promise that they will work after being uncapped for 8 weeks!
  • Pencil. The Ticonderoga brand are the most reliable, make nice dark lines when you need them, and are the easiest to erase.
  • Eraser. Large ones you can hold in your hand do a much better job than just the pencil tips. Stabilo Markers. They have the best colors, the best tips, and last the longest.
  • Black Sharpie Marker. These fine point permanent markers are great for making a crisp outline to your drawing. Use them when you want your outline show up, but not be so heavy that it detracts from other things.


Time needed: 45 minutes
