    Look at drawings of several dragons from the Chinese culture. The dragon often appears in Chinese art and as a decoration on clothing, dishes, boats, and other items. Are the dragon expressions friendly or fierce? Are they breathing fire?

  • 2.

    On red construction paper, use Crayola® Metallic Colored Pencils to outline your dragon. Include the long neck and expression you found on the Chinese dragons.

    Use a gold colored pencil to color most of your dragon. Embellish the design with a variety of other metallic colors as well for scales, claws, and perhaps fire coming from its mouth.
