Welcome to Arts corner!

Here you will have an opportunity to explore your imagination using art. Express yourself with colours and sketches.

Finger painting is a simple way to make great art! In this technique, you use your fingers to create art with a real personal touch. Let us try making an Elephant using this technique.


What you will need:

  1. Poster colours
  2. Paint brush
  3. Sketch-pen
  4. Sheet of paper
  5. Your hand

Preparation: Dip your finger in the colour of your choice.

The steps below explain how you can create a grey elephant.

Step 1: Dip your thumb in grey colour and press it on the paper twice as shown. This creates the the body of the elephant.

Step 2: Dip your little finger in grey paint and press it on the paper as shown. This creates the face of the elephant.

Step 3: Using a paint brush, draw the outline of the ears of the elephant as shown.

Step 4: Using the paint brush, colour in the ears of the elephant as shown.

Step 5: Using the sketch-pen, draw the eyes, legs and tail of the elephant. Now outline the elephant with the same sketch-pen. Remember to draw the outline for the elephant’s trunk and colour that in as well.

Now, try to make this flower and pig on your own! Don’t forget to send us photos of your creations at diycontent@neevmagazine.co.in
