There are no rights or wrongs in making art - just having fun!
ALL ART MUST BE SQUARE - CLICK HERE FOR A BLANK TEMPLATE OR choose one of our pre-designed templates below.
Feel free to mix things up and use multiple media like oil pastels and collage.
Here are some ways to make your mark, with tips about making art you’ll be happy with online:
ALL MEDIA: To look its best on the tile mural, you’ll want to create a background that reaches all four corners of the square template.
DRAWING: Oil pastels and markers are great because they mark the page with rich color. Crayons are cool too. Colored pencils work best when you take a firm hand. Lightly-colored images may not look their best when photographed or scanned.
Note: Regular pencils; fluorescent, and metallic colors will not photograph or scan well.
PAINTING: Use any kind of paint you like!
Note: Your painted images will look best if the paint isn’t so built up that it casts shadows, and if the paper isn’t so saturated that it wrinkles.
COLLAGE: You can use pictures from magazines, or construction paper for cutting out pretty colors. Flat collaging will look best online; textures and dimensions may not look as good as they do in real life. Glue sticks work better than liquid glue because liquid glue could wrinkle the art.
Note: We love glitter too! – but it will not photograph or scan well.
COMPUTER: If you like to color on the computer you can use any program to paint your template.
