Making Art Dice

In this tutorial you’ll learn how to make Art Dice – roll to figure out which art activity you should do next, and then put them in your sketchbook!

Materials you’ll need:

  • Art Dice template (see below)
  • Colouring pens or pencils
  • Glue
  • Scissors


  1. Print out / trace your art dice template
  2. Give you art dice some background colour – the more vibrant and bright the better!
  3. You’ve got 2 dice for a reason – one is for activity, and one is for subject.
  4. Decide which activities you want on the first one – drawing, painting, collage, stickers… and write one on each side of the dice
  5. Decide which subjects you want for the second one – out your window, animals, food… and write one on each side of the other dice
  6. Carefully cut out your dice
  7. Fold over the dotted lines, and glue together
  8. Now get rolling!
