“Not Just a Scribble” Creatures

(Affiliate links are used in this blog post, at no extra cost to you. Thank you for supporting Art is Basic!)

In my last blog post, I told you about a children’s book called I’m Not Just a Scribble.

The author, Diane Alber, gave us a behind the scenes interview about her process and her future books.

After reading this book, some of my students in grades K-3 created these cute scribble creatures with BIG personalities! (The one on the top left in this first picture was my example.)

It was a simple process.  First, they colored a scribble in a round shape.  Then, they used the eye and mouth stickers that I bought from Diane.

The students used thin pens and crayons to draw legs, arms and background details.  I love these facial features… such great expressions!
