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
- Magazines, pictures, calendar pictures, and books for ideas
Use a light pencil line to divide your paper into 5 spaces like this:
Choose what you will draw in each space.
I recommend starting with a favorite animal, as this is often an easier decision.
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.
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.
