Creative Project for Mom - Part 1 - Drawing

This year, to celebrate Mother’s Day, we thought we’d share a beautiful project you can easily create at home. To get started, just pick out your favourite photo of you and your mother and follow the easy steps. A creative way of saying, “I love you!”

MATERIALS:

  • Photo
  • Graphite pencil
  • Eraser
  • Tracing paper
  • Coloured pen
  • Marker or mixed media paper
  • Coloured markers
  • Black fine-tip marker

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

Step 1: 

Place the tracing paper on the photo and outline the components by simplifying the shapes as much as possible.

Step 2: 

Turn the tracing paper over and generously apply pencil, making sure to cover with graphite each line drawn on the front.

Step 3: 

Place the tracing paper over a sheet of marker or mixed media paper (slightly smaller than 6″ × 4″) and transfer the drawing by tracing it. A coloured pen allows you to see where the lines have already been traced.

Step 4: 

Colour the shapes with coloured markers.

Step 5: 

Outline the contours with the black fine-tip marker and erase the graphite pencil lines.
