Teacher confession #1,973,293: I am a horrible artist. Even my stick people look like they fell out of a tree that was frozen solid and hit every branch on the way down. #seriously #kindergartenstyle However, anchor charts are SO important in elementary classrooms so I knew I needed a work around. Guess what? I found it and I'm willing to help all struggling artists out today! You're welcome!

- Mr. Sketch Markers
- Colored Pencils
With your newly purchased clipart, print the image enlarged. I typically do 200% and click poster. This will allow the image to be larger than a single sheet of paper. The image you see above is four pieces of paper.
Now watch as the magic happens...
