Make a view finder!

If you’re still not sure what you want to create for your artwork, make view finder to help you decide! They are fun to make and will help you focus on one part of your place to reproduce as your special artwork.

How to make a view finder:

  • Step 1: Find an A4 piece of paper or cardboard.
  • Step 2: Use a ruler to draw lines diagonally across it, going from one corner all the way to the opposite corner to make a large X.
    In the centre where the lines cross, draw a small rectangle approximately 2.5 cm high by 3.0 cm wide).
  • Step 3: Cut out the inner rectangle leaving a small hole in the middle.
  • Step 4: Hold up the piece of paper and look through the hole. What do you see?
    The paper frame around the hole blocks out the rest of your view and helps you focus on just one thing.
  • Step 5: Take a photo or memorise the view.
  • Step 6: Draw or paint the view that you like through your view finder.

Tips: Check out the view finder pattern in the slideshow above.
