"Day of the Dead” Skull Pattern Drawing

By Kathybarbro @KathyBarbro
 Day of the Dead is also known as All Souls Day, and is celebrated in Mexico to pray for and remember friends and family members that have passed away. I love the Halloween-type subject matter without all the scariness that is usually attached.PREP: Print out a skull template, which you can download HERE.1. Students fold the printed skull paper, and cut on the solid lines. The eyes and nose are cut out as well. When complete, the skull is placed on a sheet of black paper and traced in pencil. I like the good, black 8.5" x 11" scrapbook paper that you can find at JoAnn’s and Michael’s. 2. Using metallic markers, such as the Prang type shown HERE, have the students draw lots of round shapes that go around the inside edge of the skull. Other round shapes are added around the outisde of the eyes and nose. NOTE: This project takes time, the more color and patterns shown the better.
