- At least two pieces of white or colored paper
- Markers, colored pencils, or crayons
- Scissors (optional)
1. Pick out three to four objects you might find in a market such as fruit, vegetables, or flowers. The examples here are a nopal (prickly pear), a mango, and papas rellenas (fried stuffed potatoes).
2. Draw these objects on your paper in a pattern. You can decide which order they go in. Are they all small? Are they all big? Or a mix of both!
3. Color them in.
4. Bonus! You can cut out your drawings of the objects and play around with different patterns on another sheet of paper.
Optional: Share your creation on Twitter or Instagram with #AlbrightKnox and #MuseumFromHome!
