Creativity Prompt: My Monster

Monsters come in all shapes and sizes. Some are scary and some are friendly. What does your monster look like? Take your supplies and create an image of your monster. Think about size, shape, texture, and color when you create it.

Supply list:

  • Paper
  • Drawing and painting material
  • Your Imagination

Tips: Making a few simple sketches help to figure out how you want your monster to look before you make your final drawing.

Technique: Use a wax crayon in parts of your drawing. Then apply washes of watercolor paint over the top. The crayon will resist the water and add cool texture and dimension to your work.

Next Step: If you want to take this project to the next step, write a poem or story about your monster. Does she have a name? What does he do when everyone is sleeping?
