Follow in the footsteps of Horace Pippin, an African-American painter. He got his start by drawing on doilies with colored pencils that he won in an art contest.
When he was young (in the late 1890s), Horace Pippin won a packet of colored pencils in an art contest. He used them to draw Bible stories and landscape pictures on fabric doilies. But people washed them and his pictures disappeared! Now his paintings hang in famous museums. Find pictures of Pippin’s work to see his artistic style and try your hand at similar art.
Cut out a paper circle the size of the inside of a paper doily with Crayola® Scissors. Use Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils and your imagination to draw and color a typical Horace Pippin painting. He liked to show families living in New York City, flowers, or children playing. Use the eraser to show highlights and patterns in walls and clothing.
Attach the circle to the center of your doily with a Crayola Glue Stick. What a perfect frame! Show your creation to your family and explain the story behind it. Or give it as a gift.
