This is your last design for the month of March, the Celtic Plait, or Braid.  It may take a little practice, so go slow and be neat.

Now use your clover leaf and Celtic designs to make a page of art all your own. Mix other designs in with it for fun.

This is the second knot we will be learning: The Celtic Double Knot. 

Now see if you can combine this knot with the single knot you learned last week.

This is the first of the two Celtic knots we will be learning. You can do decorative artwork within the tubes of the knot, or fill it with borders and dots, chain inside it, or lace other tubes through it—really, it’s up to you and what you can imagine.

This is our first new design to learn for March: the clover leaf--BIG and little, and so easy to draw!  

Take your time and be neat, and soon you’ll have clover in profusion!

March 2013

There is something mystical and magic about Celtic design used by Druids in old England—as well as the Scottish and Irish. The celebration of St. Patrick’s Day in March gives us the perfect excuse to conjure up this beloved art form.

If you’ll notice, the coloring book page uses designs, in some way, from each month’s lesson. For instance, week by week we will learn to draw a clover leaf, some simple Celtic knots, and a Celtic plait this month. All of those things are found in the coloring book page for March.

Here is another example of how the coloring can be done on the color book page.

This is a pre-school project for young children to color and make with Mom’s help.

Here is a March school project for the elementary grade children. Enjoy!

Next week I'll give you the first of four designs for March.
