1.Students start by drawing a large T shape that fills their paper. The sides of the kimono are added next, and then some details (see diagram).
2. Students look at sample photos of kimono fabric and and then draw their own. After it has been designed in pencil, they trace all the lines with a black pastel.
3. Oil pastels are used to color in their designs. Students may want to cut out their kimono and mount to another paper to get rid of any smudges.
