Which witch is this?

I saw this lesson on Artsonia in several variations.

You need:

  1. drawing sheet A4 size
  2. pencil
  3. markers
  4. white pencil or silver gel pen
  5. black paper for background

Start this the lesson with a class discussion about witches. How can you recognize a witch? What things belong to a witch? What can you say about the clothing of a witch?

Students draw with pencil the lower half of the body of a witch: skirt and legs. Around this body they draw things that belong to witches. Draw a horizon line at about 1/3 part from the bottom. The drawing should be coloured with markers. Colour the background with markers or chalk pastel. The latter is obviously faster than colouring the background with markers.

Paste the drawing on a black background and decorate the rim with theme-related little drawings. Use a white pencil or a silver gel pen.

In the debriefing should be clear that you only need a half drawing to recognize a witch: Which witch is this?
