102 Giraffe Finger Puppets

Preface Children’s art comes with its own natural charm, but the tools that kids use can either minimize or maximize it. Give a young boy or girl some average crayons and paper and you’ll probably get a nice enough picture. But give them some supplies that make bold, vivid color and a lesson that sparks creativity, and amazing things can happen. My passion over the past fifteen years has been to find and create art projects that bring these elements together, and more often than not, they use one of my most relied upon supplies—Sharpie markers. Thick or thin, black or color, metallic or poster, they enhance whatever material they go on, and seem to highlight the originality of any child who uses them. I’m excited to share these brand-new marker projects from myself and a few other passionate art teachers and bloggers, who have come to view Sharpie markers as a staple in our homes

Make your Mark Every Sharpie marker is designed to do at least one job really well, and most can do many more. These are the ones I use most frequently for kids’ projects, both at home and at school.

Sharpie Fine Point A classic black fine point is the Sharpie marker I use for outlining, in both drawings and watercolor paintings.

Proof 1

The colors in the fine point tip width are beautifully vibrant, especially on glossy finger paint paper. They can be used for many different crafts projects and are a good alternative to paints for very young students.

Sharpie Ultra.Fine Point Both the black and the colors in this tip width are great for drawing fine details. They also work well for adding visual texture to softer surfaces, such as aluminum foil.

Proof 1

Use these when bold lines are needed for large drawings and areas need to be colored really black, as with silhouettes.

Gold, Silver, and Bronze Fine Point These metallic colors look best on dark paper, especially black. They’re also great for adding metallic highlights to paintings and drawings.

Brush Tip Markers Proof 1

The soft yet sturdy brush tips help students fill color in a way that can’t be matched. They work well on paper, foil, wood, glass, ceramics, and canvas, just to name a few types of surfaces.

These are a special treat for kids when an opaque color is needed for plastic or glass craft projects. The oil base also makes them shiny and more durable than the water-based versions.

Welcome to the Workshop

the eleme nts of art The elements of art are the visual building blocks artists use to create their work. The better you understand these elements and the role each plays in making art, the more your art-making skills will improve.

Proof 1

I created these visual examples to illustrate and give meaning to each one of them.

Line

Shape

Color

A line is a mark that has width, direction, and length.

A shape is a closed line that’s two-dimensional, flat, and limited in height and width.

Color, which is produced when light is reflected from a surface to the eye, has three main characteristics: hue, value, and intensity. (See pages 18 and 19 for more information on color.)

Form

Artists use the element of space to create a feeling of depth or dimension.

The element of form gives a subject depth, as well as width and height, and is also used to teach about perspective.

Value

Texture

Value is the relative lightness or darkness of a color. Highvalue or light colors are used to represent highlights, while lowvalue or dark colors are used to represent shadows.

In art, texture refers to the way things feel, or look as if they might feel if touched.

Color Basics

Proof 1 C2C

Learning more about colors and the words to describe them will help you choose the best colors for your art. Here are some of the main categories, along with an example of each.

18

The Color Wheel Primary Colors

Secondary Colors

A color wheel organizes colors around a circle to show how they relate to each other. This example shows primary and secondary colors.

The secondaries—orange, green, and purple—are made when two primary colors are mixed together. Secondary colors can give you a deeper, richer color palette.

The primaries—red, yellow, and blue—are the three colors you need to mix secondary colors. They’re bright and bold, and sure to catch your attention.

Warm and Cool Colors

Complementary Colors

The color wheel can also be split into two groups to create different feelings. Red, orange, and yellow are warm, while purple, blue, and green are cool. If you want your art to have a cozy glow, then lots of warm colors would be good. Or if it’s a chilly look you’re going for, then reach for the cool. Do you want to make your art really pop off the background? Try using one group within another.

These colors are located across from each other on the color wheel. When placed side by side, they make each other look brighter than if viewed on their own.

Analogous Colors Analogous colors are next to each other on the color wheel; for example, orange and red or green and blue. They’re a good choice when you want to blend colors, because when they overlap, they make a nice, gradual change into each other.

Tinting and Shading

Proof 1 C2C

To tint a color, you need to add white; to shade it, you add black. Doing so will help you create highlights and shadows in your artwork.

Drawi ng Tips After years of drawing with children, I’ve noticed that many beginners share several tendencies. While there is no substitute for practice, I find that these tips make things a little less frustrating.

Whenever possible, use light pencil lines as guides across the middle of the paper to help you plan and center your artwork. Look for simple, symmetrical projects like this cat head. Extra curvy and unsymmetrical drawings seem to be more difficult for most. Start with the biggest shape first, and watch the center line so the shape is symmetrical and balanced.

Proof 1

After your big shapes are done, start to fill in with the smaller ones. Keep in mind that most children tend to draw on the small side, so check your shapes often to make sure they’re the right size.

Trace pencil lines with a marker so they’ll show up really well. Erase any remaining pencil lines to keep your art neat and looking its best.

Proof 1

Always color in shapes carefully. Using the sides of markers and crayons will help make solid colors, without any scribbles showing.

tracin g away Over the years, my students have taught me a new appreciation for the simple joy of tracing pictures. As a free-time option in my classroom, many happily search out a drawing book, place a piece of tissue paper over a page, and zone out as they carefully trace each line as accurately as possible. This exercise will never replace skills learned from observational drawing, but it seems to make a connection for those who don’t feel particularly skilled in that area. And at the very least, it’s pretty good practice for fine motor skills too.

Here are my suggestions for stocking a tracing station at home or in school. Buy a box of sandwich wrap for your “see-through” paper. It’s much less expensive than tissue paper, so you don’t have to worry too much about waste. Keep a stash of drawing books on hand. They usually have lots of line art that’s easy to trace.

. Scribb le Scrabb le Hearts This heart collage on canvas benefits from a free-form style of coloring. Try using and layering at least four colors in each box so your canvas has a rich collection of marker color.

Project Checklist • Stretched canvas • Pencil • Assorted brush tip and fine point Sharpie markers • Dry wax paper (see note below) • White glue • Water-based sealer (such as Mod Podge aerosol pray) • Copy paper • Utility scissors

What’s Dry Wax Paper?

Proof 1

Dry wax paper is a lot like regular wax paper, but much thinner. It is often used for serving fast food, such as pizza, so you can find it at most restaurant supply stores. If not, go online. Just be sure to search for dry wax paper, as the regular kitchen variety won’t work—it doesn’t “hug” the canvas after it’s dry the way dry wax paper does.

Divide canvas into desired grid with light pencil lines. This sample is 16” x 20” (40.6 x 50.8 cm) and divided into 3” x 4” (7.6 x 10.1 cm) boxes.

Trim each heart box, very close to the edge, and arrange on the canvas. Make sure to spread out any similar colors so the backgrounds are always different.

Draw a black box on copy paper and use as a template to trace and color hearts on dry wax paper. Color with markers, layering and blending as you go.

Mix white glue with water in a 50/50 ratio. Working with one box and heart at a time, brush the mixture onto both the canvas and the back of each heart. Place the heart on the canvas and brush more mixture on top so the paper is totally saturated. Smooth continually to eliminate any bubbles.

3.

6.

Continue making hearts until you have enough to fill the canvas. Try to have a large variety of colors both inside and outside each heart.

Work in rows until the canvas is filled. Check for bubbles again when complete. When the dry wax paper dries, it will cling and look like it is part of the canvas. For a shiny finish, cover with a glossy sealer after the dry wax paper is dry.

Try this as a class project. Have each student color or draw a self-portrait in his or her own box. It works great for fundraisers where a more finished piece of art is called for.

Etched Foil Fish This giant fish is made with a few ordinary supplies, but its foil color and etched texture make it look pretty special when complete.

Project Checklist • Corrugated cardboard • Glue stick • Aluminum foil • Utility scissors • Assorted brush tip and ultra-fine point Sharpie markers

art school 101:

Proof 1

This project uses several elements of art: lines, color, and texture. Before children are finished, ask them to consider if they’ve used all of them in the most complete way possible. This foil fish looks great with lots of layered color and then marker texture on top, but children need to be encouraged to work that thoroughly.

1.

3.

Cut a large simple fish shape from an old piece of cardboard. (See below for ideas of other fish shapes.) My sample is about 25" (63 cm) long. If there are folds in the cardboard, you can make them fall on the neck or tail lines.

Use utility scissors to trim all around the fish, cutting through the foil and cardboard, very close to the edge. The pressure from cutting will seal the edges together.

2.

4.

Cover one side generously with a glue stick. Make sure the glue is thick enough that you can see it, especially in folds and creases. The project will succeed only if all of the foil is completely adhered to the cardboard.

Divide the fish into sections (head, body, and tail) with a black marker and fill in all with a background color. Layer large bands of color and stripes on top. Use an ultra-fine point marker to draw scales and texture. When complete, trace the outside edge of the fish with a black marker.

Some other fish shapes to try!

Mini Abstra ct Portra it Sharpie brush tip markers can be mixed together on most surfaces, just like paint. Your kids can blend and create what looks like an oil painting, with all of the vivid color and none of the mess. This project shows how the simplest shapes can be arranged to create an image, and how color and value can be used to create dimension and depth.

Project Checklist

Proof 1

• Mini canvas and easel (found at craft chain stores and online) • Pencil • Sharpie brush tip markers in assorted colors (we used berry, black, blue, green, orange, purple, red, and yellow) • Water-based sealer (such as Mod Podge aerosol spray)

Lightly sketch a symmetrical face on the canvas with a pencil.

Use the color or value you used in Step 2 to blend in the color you applied in Step 3, leaving some of the original color visible.

2.

5.

Color in the face, using a different marker for each area so there’s contrast between the areas that are right next to each other.

3.

Add a squiggle of a darker color or value within each area as shown: along the left side of the nose; in the areas above the eyes and along the nose; within each of the eyes, along their top edges; on the outer edges of the cheeks; on the left side of the neck; and in the areas on either side of the neck.

Outline each shape in black. Apply a sealer to give the portrait a glossy finish. Let dry.

Cubism is an early twentieth-century art movement that is often credited to Pablo Picasso. It experimented with displaying several aspects of the same object at the same time. This portrait is a great way for children to learn about Cubism. For a variation, have kids draw Picasso’s Dove of Peace and then color in the same manner.

Tooled Metal Bug Project by Nic Hahn, owner of Mini Matisse blog

5.

Tape the design onto the metal tooling.

First, test out the colors on the scrap metal. Then use Sharpie markers to color the side of the bug with the raised areas.

3.

6.

Place the metal tooling on top of the felt. Trace with a dull pencil over all the lines on your design. The design will start pressing through onto the metal.

Create the legs, wings, and/or antenna with the chenille sticks or colorful wire. Hot glue the legs and metal bug onto a tag board for display.

Draw a flower in pencil on a piece of chipboard. Trace with white glue and let dry.

2.

Cover the chipboard generously with a glue stick. Tear a sheet of foil and apply, shiny side up. Rub the foil thoroughly with fingers. Wrap the extra foil around the edges and glue in place.

3.

Use a marker to color the base of each petal with a chosen main color. This sample is colored with a red marker.

Variations Another fun marker combination is blue and violet, which create a purple when overlapped. Pink and yellow are good for a lighter look and create orange when they touch.

Color the rest of each petal with a similar, analogous color, such as orange. Use a fine point marker to add lines inside each petal (shown opposite).

Watercolor pan paints or paint tablets have their place in the art room for mixing colors and other uses, but I’ve found that young artists often do much better starting with liquid watercolors. By having the paint ready to go in cups, and not needing to first brush water on tablets, they can just concentrate on controlling the color, which is a skill in itself. Many online art stores offer their own line of liquid watercolor paints.

Line Art Leaves Thin parallel lines create art with a delicate, transparent quality.

Made from a plant that grows in hot climates, the leaves, flowers, and twigs are ground into fine powder that contains natural dying properties called tannins. Hot water is then added to make a paste, and the mixture is applied to skin with a special cone-shaped tube.

Proof 1

Mass production of fine, translucent, blue-and-white porcelain started in the early 14th century at Jingdezhen, sometimes called the porcelain capital of China. The new ware was made possible by the export of cobalt from Persia, combined with the translucent white quality of Chinese porcelain. Cobalt blue was considered a precious commodity, with a value about twice that of gold.

5.

Draw four petals and three rings.

6.

7.

Add radiating lines to the last ring.

8.

Divide two thin rings with short lines. Add a dot in between each line.

Fill in the sky and outer ring with solid blue. The brush tip marker works best for this, as it leaves a smooth finish.

Safety Note:

Proof 1

This plate is to be used for decoration only, as the marker will come off with even light handling. Consider it a benefit, though, as it allows for lots of “do overs” while drawing.

African Lion

Project Checklist

Here’s a simple way to draw an impressive lion with a giant built-in mane. Use the transparent quality of coffee filters to help make your drawing as symmetrical as possible.

4.

Use a steam iron to flatten the filters to round circles. Fold in half three times so that you have a cone shape as shown. Crease the edges with your fingertips.

2.

Open the filter to see a half circle. Draw half of the face as shown with a pencil and trace with a marker. Trace the three creased lines as shown.

Open the filter and add more mane lines in between the ones already there.

5.

3.

Flip the filter over and you will see the lines. Trace to the other side with a marker.

Place the filter on a plastic embroidery sheet and paint with the liquid watercolor paint. Let dry. Some of the mesh lines will transfer onto the filter. When dry, a quick press with a steam iron again will make the filter look crisp and flat.

Choose an embroidery hoop that’s the right size for your shirt. I used a 9" (22.9 cm) hoop on an adult size small T-shirt.

Continue coloring rings around the circle until the hoop is full. The more marker that’s applied, the darker the results.

2.

4.

Place the hoop rings on the shirt, centered in the middle. Insert the cardboard between the layers of fabric so the marker won’t bleed through. Color a small circle in the center of the hoop.

Pour rubbing alcohol into a spray bottle and saturate the colored fabric. (If you’re lucky, your local drug store may sell rubbing alcohol in a spray container.) Let the shirt dry for 30 minutes before removing the hoops. Set the color with a hot iron and hand wash in cold water before wearing.

Look for the five-sided pentagon shapes and color them with your darkest marker color. They sometimes have logos that need to be covered over and will look better when colored in.

Choose another color that contrasts with the first two and finish the hexagon shape as shown.

3.

6.

Starting with one of the hexagons, draw a diamond shape as shown and fill in.

Continue filling in the remaining hexagons with the diamond shapes so they look like cubes. Try to keep dark colors separated by light colors so all the sides show up well. Spray the ball with a sealer.

Try limiting the marker bands of color to just four or so. This will mean that each color needs to be repeated a few times. The repeating color will create a more harmonious finish.

Remove the insert from a CD case. It pops out when gently pried apart.

2.

Draw flowers on one side with paint markers. Include the root system in white.

3.

Dampen a small amount of potting soil and pack into the open bottom of the CD case. Sprinkle grass seed on top. Close and wrap with a rubber band to keep the case from opening up. Stand in indirect sunlight for about one week and see what grows!

3.

Clean the can and remove the paper wrapper.

Add another strip of tape around the bottom of the can, and then finally one around the middle.

2.

4.

Cut a strip of tape that is a little longer than the circumference of the can. Apply the tape to the can by slowly removing the paper as shown.

Use the built-in ridges in the can as a guide to draw marker lines. Continue with patterns and fill in as desired.

Simplify. Focus on making nice bands of color. Brush tip markers work best for this.

Mix It Up. Keep the black and silver foil look, and add color just in the middle.

Many soup cans have a lining that keeps them from being easily recycled. Do our landfills a favor and turn them into beautiful and useful containers instead.

Cardbo ard House Save old, clean corrugated cardboard boxes and turn them into a lesson on how to make a three-dimensional form from geometric shapes. Thick and thin black markers are all you need to add some interesting architectural details to your buildings.

Project Checklist • Old, clean corrugated cardboard • Paper cutter • House drawing templates (see pages 113–119) • Black fine point Sharpie marker • Black ultra-fine point Sharpie marker • Masking tape • Craft glue

DIMENSIONS of OUR HOUSE: • Peaked sides: 6" (15.2 cm) wide 10" (25.4 cm) high • Plain sides: 5" (12.7 cm) wide 7" (17.8 cm) high

1.

Cut two squares or rectangles from cardboard, and then two peaked house ends. Lastly, cut two roof rectangles that are a little wider than the house. (See opposite for the dimensions of our house.) A good old-fashioned paper cutter works best.

2.

Using the drawing templates as guides, draw the main features of the house with a fine point marker as shown.

art school 101:

Children love to make three-dimensional things, and this project can stir all kinds of imaginative play and creative thinking. Houses can lead to villages and cities, and maybe even inspire some future architects.

Add fine details with an ultra-fine point marker. Tape the four house sides together from the inside with masking tape. Tape the two roof panels together along the long side. Run a small line of glue along the top edge of the standing house, then gently place the roof on top and let dry.

Using the drawing templates as guides, use a pencil to draw the design on the switch plates. Pencil lines don’t show very well on the plastic, so make a practice drawing on paper first. Use the fine point marker and start with the black outline shapes of your drawing. Be careful not to touch the marker, as it needs a few seconds to dry. Fill in the shapes with the brush tip markers. They make a smooth finish, but will start to blend with the black if you bump into it.

1.

Draw three wavy lines in pencil on a ceramic tile.

2.

Draw half circles attached to each line as shown. Make some large and some small, taking care to not have any ends match up.

3.

Color in the half circles with marker. Change the colors so they do not match up across the wavy line. If they do match up, the center wavy line will not show up as clearly.

For Younger Artists This easier variation, which uses fewer lines, features a warm-cool palette.

Fill in the background with one color. Apply the water-based sealer to the surface. Let dry and apply extra coats as desired.

acknowledgments I’d like to begin by thanking all the creative bloggers who generously contributed to this book. I know you have very busy lives, probably working online only after your daytime jobs and parenting work is done. You all were so helpful in sharing what you do best, and I truly am grateful for every extra bit of creativity you added to this book. I also would like to thank the students, teachers, and parents at Dixie Canyon Community Charter in Sherman Oaks, California, for your unwavering support of the arts. Every year the PTA spends countless fundraiser hours making sure that students at Dixie have access to visual and performing art classes. You are my heroes. (I’d also like give a shout-out to Mila for her monster drawing that inspired my light switch project. It was so perfect that I merely did my best to copy it.) And finally, to my husband and son, Steve and Matthew, who pretty much gave up the kitchen table and many hot meals while I created this book. Your belief that my hard work would one day pay off helped me more than you know, and I love you for it.

Proof 1

Kathy Barbro is an art teacher and blogger whose art career began at the Minneapolis College of Art & Design. After years of graphic design work, she found her passion in working with children when her son’s school was found to have no art instruction or teacher. Teaching led to blogging, where she has shared hundreds of projects over the past ten years through her site, artprojectsforkids.org. This is her first book.
