Mid-Week Draw Online: Week 30

This is a legacy story from an earlier version of our website. It may contain some formatting issues and broken links.

For this spooktacular Halloween week, Beth has chosen a frightfully good selection to give you a chill. Are you brave enough to draw?

If you are tempted to have a go, please share your drawings with us! We would love to see them. Email them to Beth at

Come back next Wednesday to see what new objects Beth has chosen.

This week’s additional ideas:

  • Mr Hyde yourself! Take two close up portrait photos of yourself. Print them off. Leave one as the ‘before’ view, then on the second one draw or paint (or find materials that you can glue on) to turn yourself into the ‘after’: your inner monster! You can cut up old magazines to stick on as collage, if you cannot find any fabric material. Go mad!
  • Design your own creepy pumpkin if you are not carving an actual pumpkin this year. You could even put it up in your window to scare people!
