In class lately, we have been working on 3D Art. It is designed to give a 3D effect. Our teacher found it from a teacher who found it from another. Instructions:

You’ll need a plain piece of white, A4 paper, coloured pencils and a lead pencil.

1. Draw a wavy line right across the middle of the page (no loops).

Wavy Line

2. Draw 8 dots spread out across the line. To make the picture interesting, make them different widths apart.

8 Dots

3.  Connect the dots like a dot-to-dot making them slightly raised. Take the line off the page for the dots on the end, connecting them to a pretend dot that is off the page.


4. Start with every second dot for this step. build upon your first raised line. Make the ‘tower’ change width for effect. keep going off the top of the page.


5. Once you’ve done this for every second column, fill in the blank ones, matching the width of the tower to the blank spot between 2 columns already done.

Fill In

6. Once 1 side of the line is completely filled in with (should be) 7 columns and 2 half columns, do the same thing on the other side. Once that is finished you should end up with 7 full columns and 2 columns cut in half.

7. Pick 3 different combinations of 9 different colours. Alternate these colours throughout one column and alternate the 3 combinations over the columns.

Here is my end result !! I hope your’s turns out well.

End Result !!

  1. Great explanation of the process Rachael. I love the way you have a photo for each step too. Your finished product looks fantastic, and they all look really effective on the wall. I hope the parents like them on Open Night 🙂

  2. Hi Rachael
    Great explanation of the process of making a 3D art. The photos are very great. We have done some art lately. We used photo shop. We had to choose an excursion photo. We had to use the photo four times.
    Our school blog is year5rc. I have my own blog.

  3. Hey Rach

    That’s really good! I don’t think I’d do very well with that sort of artwork. 😛 Lately in MM’s class, we’ve been doing Pablo Picasso artworks! We all chose a piece of Pablo Picasso’s art out of 6 choices. I was the only person to pick one of them. There were some very good ones in our class!!!


  4. Hi Rahael, I loved your 3D art and I liked your clear instructions on how to do it. I’m wondering if it might be something I could try with Room 2 children – it could be a little tricky but it would be fun trying! Judi

  5. Hi its Georgia here!
    That 3D art looks awesome and hard.
    See you later from Georgia in room9.

    🙂 🙂 🙂 😀 😀 😀 🙂 😀
