Personality Flag Art Project

Just like a state flag tells something about the state, your personality flag will tell something about you. If you are teaching a class, this is a great project to help you to get to know your students.

What will you put on your flag? An object? An animal? Your favorite dessert? A quote or verse? A picture of a musical instrument?


  • Watercolor paper
  • Watercolor paint
  • Brushes
  • Water
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Eraser
  • Magazines, pictures, calendar pictures, and books for ideas

Step 1

Use a light pencil line to divide your paper into 5 spaces like this:

This image visually describes the way to divide up the page.
What objects, animal, quote, or food will you choose to tell me something about you?

Step 2

Choose what you will draw in each space.

Beginning of layout
Lightly draw your ideas and begin painting your flag.

I recommend starting with a favorite animal, as this is often an easier decision.

Student has painted a tiger eye.
This student is both bold and mysterious as shown by the tiger’s eye!

You do not have all 4 spaces drawn in before you begin painting. I have found that this project tends to come together best one space at a time.

In beautiful writing, the Bible verse Eph 4:32 is written.
This is one of my favorite verses.

For verses or quotes, you can use your computer to try out different fonts and arrangements to find a pleasing layout. I had fun finding this fancy “B” in a calligraphy book. I used a light watercolor wash behind it, to look like it was written on parchment.
