Complete this Frankenstein drawing lesson with your class at school and create the perfect bulletin board “Franken-buddies” display for Halloween.
A Frankenstein Directed Drawing Any Child Can Create
Today, I’m bringing you one of my favorite Halloween art activities: The Frankenstein Franken-Buddies directed drawing!
Frankenstein Drawing Steps
Below are my step-by-step instructions to create these cuties in your room.
I give each child a large white piece of quality art paper. Turn it long side up and down, and get a sharp pencil and eraser ready. I dislike erasing too much and encourage the kiddos to not expect or try for perfection!
I have my students complete the drawing with a pencil, and once they are happy with it, they can trace it with a Sharpie marker and erase the pencil lines. Then, they are ready to use their watercolor paints to paint their Franken-buddies.
I request that they use green for the face and black for the hair, but the rest is up to their creativity.
Don’t you just love how great these Franken-buddies turned out? I especially love how excited and artistic my students feel after completing this directed drawing (or any, for that matter). Teaching kids to draw step by step is a powerful and effective tool!
Here are the 1st, 3rd, and 4th graders Franken-buddies displayed in our school hallway. I love how they look cut up and glued onto purple and black construction paper.
Each one is so interesting and unique in its own way! A cute bulletin board display with these will brighten the kids’ spirits and provide an educational opportunity just in time for Halloween.
I hope you love one of my fall favorites for art and take the dive into directed drawing in your classroom.
