Can you believe it’s been 20 years since Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was published? What a fun, magical world J.K. Rowling created for us all! (And what a controversy it began among many people I highly respect!) But in celebration of the 20th anniversary, I’ve put together five Harry Potter inspired art tutorials for you and your Potterhead kids to create.
Our family has always been huge Harry Potter fans. Here are a few pictures of our kids dressing up for the midnight showing of “Deathly Hallows, Part B” waay back in 2011 (Um, I think I had as much fun dressing them up as they did wearing the costumes):
So without further ado, here are several mixed media and hand-lettered art tutorials based on a few of my favorite quotes. Feel free to adapt each project to make it your own by using your favorite quotes/characters/patronuses, etc.
P.S. I’d LOVE o see your finished pieces! Simply email them to: firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll post them to our student art gallery!
Be sure to check back each day to see the new art tutorial! I hope you and your Potterhead kids enjoy!
