Create a collaborative castle mural in the style of Mary Blair (approx. 4’x7′ but it can vary). Mary Blair is famous for designing the castle in Disney’s It’s a Small World. Create a stunning fantasy castle that will add some modern flair to your art show or as a backdrop to a Disney music program.
The perfect lesson after reading the book, Pocket Full of Colors: The Magical World of Mary Blair, Disney Artist Extraordinaire.
Be sure to take a look at my lesson for drawing smaller individual castles as well as the money saving bundle of both.

You will get 80 pre-designed pages that make a castle approximately 4 feet tall and 7 feet wide. You can add or subtract pages and arrange the castle any way you’d like to fit the number of students and the space you’d like to fill.
Use your choice of media or mix things up and use crayons, markers, colored pencils and watercolors to create some beautiful color variations. There is also an option for using a blank square to have your students draw their own design (and 60 sample design ideas).
