Art Share – Coloring Books

 

Arts & Crafts is a camp activity staple. Whether it is rock painting, screen printing, or even making friendship bracelets there is always a way to express yourself artistically at camp. 

As part of our Build Strong @Home series, we want to create and share artwork from our campers. This week we want to start making a coloring book!

Here is a great article on how to create your own coloring book from Bluprint, written by Jessie Oleson Moore: https://www.mybluprint.com/article/how-to-make-your-own-coloring-book-tips-and-a-tutorial

 

We have some tips of our own to help you out as well:

Pick your favorite tree, element, building, animal, etc on camp and draw its outline

Tips for drawing:

    • Draw with a pencil first
    • Choose something pretty simple to draw – Pick your favorite tree, element, building, animal, etc on camp and draw its outline
    • Stay away from shading or adding value, just draw the outlines!
    • Go over the pencil in black marker – like a sharpie
    • Fill up a whole 8 x 11 page
    • Have fun!

Share your creations with us at buildstronghome@frostvalley.org so we can create a coloring book to share with our Frost Valley Family!
