In a house no bigger than many bedrooms, Maud Lewis, a folk artist, created delightful paintings of her beloved Nova Scotia. Craft a model of her bright, happy, little home.
Find out about the life of Maud Lewis. Look at her art work and at pictures of the inside of her house, which was only 9 x 10 feet (2.7 x 3 m). To make a model of the inside of her home, start with a small, square, recycled box. With Crayola® Scissors, cut out the top and one side, leaving three walls and a floor.
Use the box sides as patterns. Trace the interior walls on light-colored construction paper. Trace the floor on darker paper. Cut the paper to size.
Maud Lewis loved flowers, birds, and butterflies. Use Crayola Gel Markers and Crayola Washable Markers to draw them on the walls, windows, and door of her little house. Or you could cover the house with patterns of things that make you happy. Draw a colorful rug for the floor.
Use Crayola Classic Fine Line Markers to add tiny pictures like those Maud Lewis painted. She often used humor in her paintings. Her oxen had long eyelashes and her spruce trees had blossoms. Her bright, daytime scenes often contained no shadows. Have fun
Fold and cut cardboard to make steps, a table, a chair, overhead beams, or other furniture. Decorate with markers. Glue in place. Air dry.
Use markers to draw and color other house items such as a broom, mittens, or clothes to hang from the overhead beam. Draw curtains for the window. Glue in place. Air dry.
Draw and decorate your own tiny Paintings for Sale sign. Prop it up in your scene. Glue and air dry.
