Children's Crayon Art - Overlapping Templates

This project could be adapted to any subject, for example a horse and sun template cut from cardboard.
Here I use a simple triangle and figure.

Children watch me make this master as I talk about the design choices of spirals, scallops, zig-zags, dashes, wavy lines and polka dots. Each shape is filled in using normal crayons.

Now the artists trace their design using the triangle and cardboard figure to create and fill in their composition. They see the space being broken into many new and interesting shapes.
