Pastel Kimono

By Kathybarbro @KathyBarbro
Pastel KimonoStudying the art culture from other countries offers a a new perspective on common items such as clothing.1. I made t-shaped cardboard templates for the students so they could start with straight lines. Mine measured about 10" wide x 15" tall. Have the students trace the templates onto white 12" x 18" paper. The sides of the kimono are added next, and then some details (see diagram).
2. Show some sample photos of kimonos and ask the students to draw their own. After it has been designed in pencil, they should trace all the lines with a black marker.
3. Distribute oil pastels and encourage use of bright colors.
4. Have the students cut out their kimono and mount to another paper (this helps get rid of any smudges).
