What could be more enchanting than a fairy tale castle in the snow painted by a six or seven year old? Fairy tales like The Snow Queen and the movie Frozen are natural tie ins with this project, as well as the colorful castles of artist Mary Blair who designed for Walt Disney.
The basic castle drawing is simple enough for a 5 year old, and older kids can create more individualized and detailed variations. Included in the lesson are line drawings of 12 different castles, giving the kids lots of ideas to help them design their own castle.
