FREE ART LESSON + PROJECT FOR KIDS
DRAW AN AMERICAN FLAG AND CUTE COTTAGE
Learn to draw a large American flag displayed on a cute cottage-style house using a marker. Bring focus to your American flag by adding bold color with colored pencils, then lightly color in architectural details of the house.
My favorite part about this project... there are no mistakes in art! So have lots of fun drawing elements of the house and adding small of amounts of color to let the American flag stand out.

Want to change up the medium? Go for it. Swap out the colored pencils — use markers, or even try it with watercolor paints. I’m sure that would look awesome!
