Whimsical House

This Whimsical House artwork focuses on the element of line and simple patterning. Students can work on repetition and the skill of stippling (using their pen to make dots).

Introduction

This fun whimsical house requires only paper and a black Sharpie. If you have both a thin and thick Sharpie, that’s even better. However you can use lead pencil or any marker or fine point pen as well. 

This artwork focuses on the element of line and simple patterning. Students can work on repetition and the skill of stippling (using their pen to make dots).

Remember to use a newspaper under your work when you are using Sharpies, otherwise they can stain. There are no rules to this house – embellish and be creative!

Start to make patterns in between the lines of the roof. Simple straight lines work best. Then create small circles around the window and use the stippling method to fill in and create shade.

Step 7
