Dutch canal houses

Made by Anne, 10 years old

You need:

  1. white drawing paper A4 size
  2. indian ink or fine black marker
  3. dip pen
Dutch canal houses are famous for their facades: stepped gable, neck gable, bell gable, clock gable or spout gable. Search the internet for photographs from canal houses and discuss the features of canal houses: the facades, the stairs, symmetry, windows, ornaments, shutters. 
Let students draw a line on their sheet about 5 cm from below. This is the canal. Sketch the houses lightly with a grey pencil. Indicate the places of windows, stairs, doors and shutters. Draw the houses with indian ink.
At the end stick all drawings together to get a long street full of canal houses.
