What You Need:

  • 9″ x 12″ white paper
  • Popsicle┬« sticks
  • glue
  • crayons
  • scissors

What You Do:

I have my talented art students teach a lesson each March for Youth Art Month. This year my 4th grade student, Ryan Hecker, created a really neat plan. You make a picture frame on paper and then draw a picture inside of it. They really turned out very nicely!

  1. Students need 8 Popsicle® sticks, 2 for each side, then they will glue them to their paper in a square shape to create the frame. Next, they will draw a picture of their choice in the frame.
  2. They may also color on the Popsicle® sticks to color the frame.
  3. When they have drawn their picture they will cut the excess away from around their picture frame and they have a complete picture in a frame!

It is so easy and the results are so neat! I hope you enjoy it!
