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

Keywords: Diamond, equal

Step 1: Draw a diamond as shown below. Use a ruler if desired.
Step 2: Add more diamonds to your drawing, however as you wish.
Step 3: With a fresh piece of paper, draw anything you wish, but incorporate at least one diamond into your artwork. Use glue, scissors, colored paper, markers, paint, or anything else you desire to create your artwork.

See below the painting 'The Cheat with the Ace of Diamonds' by Georges de La Tour. Examine the painting and find the diamonds.

The ace of diamonds has a single diamond on it. Look for the lady who is cheating at cards. She is holding the Ace of Diamonds card behind her back. She also holds at least another two cards with diamonds on them.
