STEP 1. Research on the internet and find
a kanji that you like. Pick one with only a
few lines.Our example is the kanji for
FIRE. Print it for reference.
STEP 7. Continue adding pieces,
overlapping the edges.
STEP 6. Glue the pieces onto the paper on
top of the pencil lines.
cut edge with a small piece of sandpaper.
STEP 4. To make the smaller pieces, place
one stick on top of another and trace
around the curved end.
STEP 2. With a pencil copy the kanji on a
heavy weight piece of drawing paper or
cardstock. Leave plenty of white space
around the edges.
STEP 3. You'll need to cut several sticks
into smaller pieces to form the kanji. Cut
them approximately in half.
STEP 10. With a pencil draw a line all
around the outer edge of the kanji
about 1/4" from the edge of the sticks.
STEP 8. Complete the main body of the
kanji. If the sticks are too big, make them  
smaller to fit around the shape.
STEP 12. Decorate the kanji any way you
want. Varnish it if you like. Then cut it out
around the edge and glue it to a bright
piece of felt.
STEP 11. Draw a second line around the
first one. Make it any shape that you like.
You can even draw a third outline if you
have room on your paper.
STEP 9. Then do the small side pieces. Use
as many sticks as you need until the whole
kanji is done.

LEARN TO DRAW GRAFFITI ART
Multicultural arts and crafts project for kids of all ages
What you will need:

  • Jumbo popsicle sticks (you need to use
    jumbo craft sticks, because you can cut
    them with scissors)
  • Tacky glue (you can use regular Elmers
    glue, but Tacky glue works better,
    because it's thicker)
  • acrylic paints or crayons or colored pencils
    (you can combine all three)
  • scissors
  • varnish (optional)
  • sand paper
  • a pencil
  • good drawing paper or cardstock
Art plays an important role in shaping and recording our cultural history. Teaching it from a multicultural perspective has become an
increasingly necessary discipline in our globally connected world.... Yada, yada, yada.

The bottom line is that kids love learning this way! So we hope you enjoy this creative, multicultural activity for homeschoolers,
parents, teachers, and kids of all ages: elementary school, middle school, and high school children will love this project.
