What we will be doing:

In this video we will be teaching children how to draw a Phoenix and a castle.

We will be working in pencil and sketching an outline, followed by using some water based paints to add colour, finally we will be adding detail in pen.

What you will need:

  • Paper
  • Drawing pencil
  • Eraser
  • Pencil sharpener ( or a sharp pencil!)
  • To colour:
    • Water based paints, or felt tips or colouring pencils
    • Pen for detail.

Possible background reading:

  • The Phoenix and the carpet ( E. Nesbit)
  • The last phoenix ( Linda Chapman and Steve Cole)

What else you could do after this painting
Draw what your phoenix might like to eat and where it lives – does it live in a nest or have a different type of home? Does it have any secret magic powers and if so what are they?
