Romero Britto ‘A New Day’ Art Piece

What you need: paper, pencils, felt pens and permanent markers.

We looked at Romero Britto’s – A New Day and formed a set of instructions for how we would create our own versions of the picture. They had to follow the step-by-step instructions to create the picture.

Here’s the original artwork:

And here are some of the pieces we created:

Romero Britto Inspired Letters

What you need: paper with letters on it, crayons and permanent markers.

We looked at Romero Britto artworks and brainstormed the different things we could see (e.g. bright colours, clashing of patterns). We then used these things to design our own Romero Britto inspired artworks using the first letter of our first name.

    Where would I find the step by step instructions?

    • Janeen

      Hi Sandra Unfortunately, the 'we' mentioned in the blog is not referring to Teach Starter making a set of instructions. Rather, the teacher who gave this idea had her students form a set of instructions (to create their own artwork) after being inspired by Romero Britto's work.

  • Emelia Ussher

    Is there any recommended templates for the letters?

    • Holly (Teach Starter)

      Hi Emelia, unfortunately, we don't have anything that would work on the website. But you could easily create something in word with the letters not having a filling.

    Hi all.. they are easy to do and it is very engaging. There is step by step that can be done, all you need to do is youtube inspired Britto artwork, it will show..
