How to Create Art using your Name
This is an art activity we used to do in grade 3. I remember it vividly. Maybe it was just a make-work project from our teacher, a way to fill time, or even a way to practice our cursive writing.
Whatever the reason, we used to love making these pictures from our names.
It’s also a great activity if you are waiting in a restaurant. Flip over the paper place mat and have the kids start creating!
Start by writing your name in cursive in the middle of the page. As few kids know how to do cursive writing any more, you will probably have to do this step for them.
Trace around your name, one layer at a time, creating a rainbow effect until the page is full.
It’s that easy!
