Draw a picture of your house to record where you spent time with your family during the coronavirus (COVID-19) stay-at-home quarantine. The house drawings will document where you lived in 2020 and when framed can make a nice conversation piece for your home or office. This activity is for all age groups and artistic abilities. Incorporating various art styles will make the drawings more interesting.
- Take a chair outside and sit in front of your house or take a photograph of the front of your house and sit at the kitchen table to create a drawing of your house.
- Use copy paper or any other types of drawing papers that you may have available in your house. Thicker papers will work better if you plan on creating a painting of your house.
- Draw the basic shape of your house and fill in all of the details, starting with the largest to the smallest. Include other features in the drawing such as sidewalks and driveways, bushes and trees, and other contextual details.
- Use the HOF collection drawing as inspiration but don’t let it limit your creativity.
- Add color using any materials that you may have around the house such as crayon, colored pencil, marker, watercolor, tempera/acrylic paint, or mixed media.
