This popular Halloween project features drawing and designing, allowing each artist to add their own personal design twists. The actual drawing emphasizes proportion and shape, while the detailing emphasizes originality, variety and contrast! I have successfully used this with first graders, but this works well with 3rd and above. Middle schoolers found it age appropriate and really got into creating their own patterns, designs and color variations. This usually can be finished in two, one hour sessions. The first hour to draw and set up their character, the second for adding great details!
