Hummingbird Gr.2

Second graders drew detailed hummingbirds with Sharpies.  They added a variety of flowers which they colored with crayons.  Borders were added with Sharpies and crayons.  Liquid watercolors completed the sky and borders.

Kindergarten Still Life

Craypas and kindergarteners can turn a great idea into a smeary mess!  This beautiful flower still life was done by a kindergartener with craypas-and no smears.  As always, students were instructed to keep their hands from resting on the paper.  The secret to the success was the use of velour paper.  The texture helped keep the oil pastels from smearing.   Kids loved working on the soft paper.  Best of all, every drawing was absolutely beautiful.
