Have fun combining  letters and words and turning it into works of art... many ideas from the simple to more intricate.

Unless otherwise indicated, images on this page come from 1st to 7th grade students of Shannon Stewart at Stetson Elementary School in Phoenix.

Now...challenge your kids to see what they  come up with!

NEWSPRINT NAMES

 

 

1. Have children practice cutting out letters using the concepts of symmetry.
2. Using black and brown  paper, challenge youth to create a design using their name.
As you see, the results can be great! Image source: techyteacher (Sixth grade students Hope and Jacob)

 

 

 

Write the ABC's in 'BUBBLE LETTERS'

Begin by showing students how to draw "bubble" letters. When ready...
1. Have children write the ABC's in bubble-style. Change the size and direction of the letters, using overlap, to add variety and interest.
2. Draw line patterns in the background, repeating some patterns, drawing some lines thick, others thin, etc.
3. When the background is filled, color the letters with markers.
