Draw Like An Egyptian- Art at the Library

I was asked to present a lesson for two local libraries and I chose to present "Draw Like An Egyptian." The lesson plan may be found on The Incredible Art Department. It is my lesson, but I will need to retype it here when I have time. (I really wish we could cut & paste on Blogger!)

The simple steps are as follows:

1. Draw an Egyptian figure surrounded by Hieroglyphics.

2. Trace using black permanent marker.

3. Sponge acrylic on top to make it look aged.

4. Add liquid watercolor sparingly.


  1. harika!ne çok şey öğrendim sizlerden teşekkürler.

  2. Beautiful drawings.
    I love the effect of the water colors.

  3. Fantastic idea! Thinking of doing Egyptian art later in the year...

  4. These look fantastic! Libraries and children's art, what a fantastic combination! These look so authentic and it's great to see so many photos of the process, thank you! :)

  5. Oooh! I love it! Thanks for sharing this great idea!!

  6. This is incredible! I hope you don't mind if I borrow it during my ancient Egypt unit.
