Instructions: Practice drawing crescents. A crescent is an outer circle with an adjoining inner circle where the points that touch are removed.

Materials: Drawing paper and drawing implements such as pencils, fine-tipped pens or markers, or charcoal.

Keywords: Crescent

Step 1: Using a pencil with an eraser, draw a circle within a larger circle as shown below. The two circles must touch at one place.
Step 2: Erase the lines where the circles touch to create the crescent.
Step 3: With a fresh piece of paper, draw anything you wish, but incorporate at least one crescent into your artwork. Use glue, scissors, colored paper, markers, paint, or anything else you desire to create your artwork.

Vincent van Gogh, an artist you studied last year, painted a crescent moon in his work 'The Starry Night,' seen below.
