Here's a dotty way to give your artwork a real punch!

You will need:
  • Coloured paper
  • Magazine
  • Tracing paper
  • Hole punch
  • Pencil
  • PVA glue
  • Paintbrush
Did you know that you can use a hole punch to make a great picture?
Of course, inside a hole punch you 'll always find lots of small dots of paper.

They can be used to make great pictures!
Take a page from a magazine - faces work really well.

Lie a sheet of tracing paper over it.
Go around all the main shapes of the picture using a soft pencil.

Don't put in too much detail - but do line out the dark and light areas. When done, trace the face onto a piece of white paper.

And when you've traced the picture, colour in the sections with felt tips.

Leave some sections so that you can colour them with coloured dots of paper from a hole punch.
Paste PVA glue onto the section that you want to cover...
...then sprinkle on a handful of dots in the colour you want.
You'll end up with a stylised, half-dotty picture.

Looks good, doesn't it?
This one is half dotted, and half coloured in.
This one uses different shades of green.
And this cartoon looks great!

Try it yourself!
