How to make this Alphabet Art Project

This simple project works great for kinders and new artists as it just calls for tracing a template in crayon, and then painting in the boxes. The combination of crayons and watercolors just can’t be beat for making really pretty children’s art. Note: This template just got a lowercase template added too!

That said, if you do have the budget, I recommend using real watercolor paper. It makes the paint colors come to life, especially when you use liquid watercolor paint.

Liquid, as opposed to tablet paint in trays, will allow young artists just focus on getting the paint on the paper, and not figuring out how to mix water with them first. Those are great for older kids as they eventually need to figure out how to do that, but in the beginning it’s fun to get right to the painting. And if you are a busy teacher with a big class, it speeds things up immensely too. Spill proof cups with brushes that stayed in them were a life saver back in my day.

Wondering how you get an odd number of letters (26) into a grid of 25 boxes? Easy, just have two skinny letters (I and J) share a box.

Materials for an Alphabet Painting

  • Watercolor Paper.
  • Real watercolor paper always makes the watercolor paint much more vibrant.
  • Crayola Crayons.
  • This classic brand always works well.
  • Rounded Watercolor Brush.
  • A good paint brush can make all the difference in the world. Who can paint small details with one of those big floppy brushes? This style with a sturdy rounded tip were my hands down favorite.
  • Liquid Watercolor Paint.
  • These paints are so easy to work with, leave such bright colors and last for a long, long time. Well worth the investment.
  • Non-Spill Paint Cup.
  • Train your students to leave the matching brush in each cup after they use it, and you have an easy system with very little cleanup.
