Today's Art Lesson
is brought to you by a Highly Regarded Guest Artist
who goes by the name of Squibs.
He is going to teach you all about
and how to make them.
I hope you're ready!
"Good morning class. My name is Mr. Squibs.
Today I'm going to show you how to make a Dragon Flag.
"First you get some black cotton material. Then you cut it to look like a flag. Like this."
|note: scissors are not to scale|
The flag is MUCH larger than the scissors!
"Then you get out your trusty roll of contact."
"Cut out a square of contact. Draw the outline of your dragon onto the contact.
(If you draw on the smooth plastic side you need to use a pen, but when you cut the shape out and stick it down the picture won't be reversed.
If you draw on the paper side, you only need to use pencil, but the picture will be reversed.)"
"Then cut out your dragon
and stick it onto the flag.
"Then get your art teacher to take it home and spray it magically with bleach."
"When it dries, peel off the contact, and voila! There's your dragon flag."

taught Squibs to make the flags
…so that he could teach you!)
