Canvas art is a great way to incorporate both painting and coloring skills for adults or children. Even if you’re doing it in a group, you can be creative and draw your own.

It’s really fun to ask multiple people to paint the same thing and then see the result at the end and see how everyone has their own spin and color choices.

Cameras are a simple topic that anyone can relate to to some extent… Even young children can only look at their cell phone cameras!

If you’re doing this as homeschooling with one or two kids, I don’t recommend buying too much paint. Unless you already have a picture, it’s a good idea to pre-select it before you buy. When teaching a group, you want to have many options and, if you don’t have other colors, you want to be able to create other colors by mixing black, white, and primary colors.

Things you need:

  • Canvas 12″ x 16″
  • pencil, ruler and eraser
  • paper napkins
  • pallet or paper plate
  • Acrylic paint in selected color
  • a cup of water
  • Brushes come in several sizes, from about an inch to small for detailing.
  • easel if you want

To protect the surface, it is recommended to lay out a disposable tablecloth first and throw it away later or when it wears out after a lot of art activity.

If you ask people to draw their own camera, wait for them to get their easel, water, etc. If you teach in a small group like me, this part is optional, as the children do not have to draw by drawing on the canvas beforehand.

A Step-by-Step Guide to Camera Painting

Camera painting done

When I teach painting on canvas, I always give everyone black and white so that they can learn shading and tone even if they don’t use it themselves, and how to use white for the little reflections that have a big impact on the painting.

For this camera, I’ve assigned all the grays to the lens area, but you can also always mix black and white.

Let each person choose a color for the center area of ​​the camera where they place the strip, which can be one or two colors depending on your choice. Some kids will add more than one, but I’ll start with two.

Then we do the background selection as well. Make it a color that contrasts well with your other color choices to make it stand out as you paint.

You are now ready to paint!

Use the ruler to create a large rectangular shape in the center of the canvas, leaving a little more space at the top of the canvas than at the bottom so we can add the camera button and viewfinder. Then go back and add a knob and angled part to the top of the viewfinder.

For the lens, draw a circle in the center right of the camera and just inside the first circle to create an edge. If necessary, use a compass or a small bowl or plate to trace the contours of the perfect circle.

Then take a ruler and draw a cross section on both sides of the side of the lens, adding lines from the lens to the top and bottom edges of the camera (see picture), and draw a small circle on the front. Cameras for lenses/buttons that can add interest.

If you are making more than one yourself, use decal and tracing paper to make copies of your tracing, then transfer to another canvas to save time and if you need to make sure they all look the same cut.

Stage 1

start painting

Start painting the background. Then go inside and use the big brush to paint everything. Also make sure the outer edge touches the canvas.

You may need a different coating, but letting it dry a bit and working on the camera while you wait will really tell you if you need a touch-up or a full coating. If you see a white net, be sure to cover it.

For the camera, use a thin brush to outline the outer edges in black to separate the lines between the camera and the background.

Then go in and explain the lens and the middle part as well. This part can be confusing when you start painting if you don’t have a line set to help hold it in place.

Step 2

Some of the kids I taught didn’t do this part and they ended up painting black areas where they could add color and they were frustrated. If it helps, show me a picture with an outline. I leave pictures on my laptop when I go so I have an example unless I paint.

Next, paint the black part of the camera. This will require two coats to get a nice color and black. So if you do one thing and then go back to the second base coat while it dries, it works great.

Step 3

camera painting

Once the camera is done with two background layers and black, you can style the center part of the camera any way you like.

If you are making the stripes, I recommend drawing them with a pencil first. The same goes for practically any design to make sure it fits.

Now paint this part. If one coat needs to be slightly dry before applying the next, paint the gray lenses while you wait.

The final element that completes the camera is a nice monochromatic gray lens with white highlights. Or, like me, adding hearts.

Step 4

I’ll also finish off by adding a few more in the middle, then highlight the top edge of the camera with the top edge, and a little on the lens. This makes the camera more stereoscopic and less flat.

Also add one in the bottom corner if you want. It can be gray or white or a combination of both.

Now check everything including all the outer edges. Don’t forget the floor! Add touch-up, then let dry.

Have fun coloring or teaching and make it your own!

Canvas paintings are a great way to incorporate both drawing and painting skills for adults or children. They allow you to get creative and make painting your own, even if you’re also doing it with a group.
There’s something really fun about asking multiple people to paint the same thing and then seeing the results at the end, and how each puts their own spin on it, and the color choices they make.
A camera is an easy subject that everyone can relate to, at least to some extent…even if for the youngest, they only see a phone camera!

If you’re doing this as a home lesson, with just one or two kids, I’d suggest not buying too many paint colors, maybe even pre-choosing before buying, unless you have already paintings. If you’re teaching a group, you’ll want to have lots of options, and if nothing else, black, white, and primary colors so they can be mixed together to create other colors.

For this camera I also gave everyone gray for the lens areas, but you can always mix black and white for that too.
Have each person choose the colors for the center area of ​​the camera – where I put the stripes, and it can be one or two colors, whichever they choose. Some kids will end up adding more than one, but I would start them with just 2.
Then also a background choice. Make it a good contrasting color with the other color choice so it really pops when you paint it.

Use the ruler and create a large rectangular shape in the center of the canvas, but leave a little more space at the top of the canvas than at the bottom so you can add the camera buttons and viewfinder. Then go back and add some buttons and an angled piece on top for the viewfinder.
For the lens, draw a circle in the center right of the camera, then another just inside the first so it has an edge. If desired, use a compass or use a small bowl or plate to trace the outline for a perfect circle.
Then take the ruler and draw a section next to the lens on both sides adding lines from the lens to the edge of the camera at the top and bottom (see pics) and draw some small circles on the front . the camera for lenses/buttons to add interest.
If you are making more than one yourself, use transfer paper and tracing paper to make a traced copy, then transfer it to the other canvases if you need to save time and want them all to look the same cut.

start painting
Start by painting in the background. Then go in and use a big brush to paint it all over. Also be sure to get the outer edges on the canvas.
It may need another coat, but let it dry a bit and work on the camera while you wait, and then you can really tell if it just needs a touch-up or a full coat. If you see a white web appear, cover it for sure.
For the camera, outline the outer edge of it in black with a thin brush so that the line between the camera and the background is separated.
Then go in and describe the lenses and the middle section as well. This part can be confusing once you start painting if you don’t have established lines to help you stay in place.

Some of the kids I taught didn’t do that part and they ended up painting black areas they could have added color to and they were frustrated. Show them the picture with the outlines if that helps. I leave pictures on the laptop as I go so they have an example unless I paint them as well.

Now paint this section. If one coat needs to dry a bit before adding the next, go in and paint the gray lenses while you wait.
The final parts to finish off the camera are the lenses in a nice solid grey, with a white highlight, or if you add a heart like I did.

Also, add anything else to your middle section to finish it off, then highlight the top corners of the camera, with the top edges, and a bit on the lenses. This helps make the camera more 3D and less flat.
Also add one in the bottom corner if you want. They can be gray or white, or a combination of both.
Now check everything, including all the outer edges – Don’t forget the bottom! Add touch-ups, then let it dry.
Have fun painting or teaching this, and make sure you make it your own!
