Help your budding artist at home become a character designer! Follow along as we draw up a happy, little vampire who is at home. We go step-by-step with tips and tools to help you sketch up a fun friend. This project is led by A&H’s Grants Manager, Taylor Battle (with a hidden talent!)

Is your family up for a challenge? Everyone can try this activity:

Create three lists: (1) a list of magical creatures, (2) a list of occupations or activities, and (3) a list of moods or emotions. Cut each list into strips and place in three separate bowls. Have each person draw one strip of paper from each bowl, and then draw that combination. Share your combinations and illustrations with us on Facebook or Instagram and tag @ahmaitland.
