Chinese Dragon Painting



I love Chinese Dragons and so do my students. Every kid from 3rd grade all the way up to 6th grade enjoys drawing this mythical figure. Some kids keep it real simple while others spend hours on the details. This lesson plan will offer you the full lesson technique for 4th grade and then explain how to scale the lesson down to 3rd and up to 5th and 6th.

There are lots of goodies within these pages; I finally have a place in which all my dragon facts and drawing aids are contained, so yes, creating this PDF was a bit selfish of me!

Hopefully, you will find it handy as well.

Here’s what’s included in this 13-page lesson plan:

  • 4th Grade student gallery
  • Teaching tips for 3rd, 5th and 6th grade students
  • 2 dragon drawings/idea handout
  • 1 Color-Me Dragon handout
  • How to Draw a Dragon handout
  • Watercolor tips
  • Chinese Dragon Facts
  • Full-color photo tutorial

    Patti, I tried to do the free download, but it just brings me to a page about art on a cart and doesn’t ever take me to the handouts/materials. Are they still available?

    Hi, I can’t find this in the member’s club anywhere. Thought perhaps the Asian art bundle, but it’s not there. Is this available?

    • Patty

      Hi Roslyn, The watercolor dragon is located in the Asian Art Bundle. Also, you can use the SEARCH bar feature to search for lessons inside the membershi.

    Hi Patty I can’t find the Chinese New Year Bundle in the Members, you mentioned it would be released in January, is this still true ?

    • Patty

      Hi Julie…I saw your question being asked in the group so I know you are now taken care of. Make sure to access your bundles in the Sparklers Website. It’s different than DSS. You’ll see all the bundles there. Also, you can use the SEARCH bar feature to search for lessons inside the membership 🙂
