The younger children have been creating flower paintings using first oil pastels to draw the flowers, then painting over the oil pastels with dark blue water based paint. The paint doesn't stick to the oil pastels which creates fun results that always makes the kids oooh! and awww! when I first show them this technique.
|painting the oil pastel flower drawing....|
|these were all done by kindergartners|
|I sat down with the kinders and "taught" them how to draw a flower. First I had them draw a circle in the middle of their paper, then I asked them if they all knew how to draw the letter "U" ? I then showed them how the flower petals were just the letter U drawn all around the circle and we proceeded from there..great results I think! We only had some pink paper to use for this so on some the pink shows through but I liked the results. I used this flower drawing lesson for all grades K-3, and we had some fun flower paintings.|
|one student came back after school and asked to do more of the oil pastel resist paintings so I gave her the crayons and she came up with this...|
