Snowy Forest Grade 4

White craypas were used to draw a cluster of pine trees on a snowbank.  White chalk was applied heavily to the edges of a tagboard oval.  The oval was placed over the trees, then a tissue was used to smudge the chalk from the center out.  A dusting of tempera snow was spattered on with a toothbrush rubbed against a screen.


Haunted House Stencils Grade 3

Third graders cut out a creepy haunted house from white paper.  They used Post It glue sticks to position the house on black paper, then sponged over and around the house with white, turquoise, and violet tempera.  The windows and moon were stamped on with pieces of sponge dipped in white tempera.  Filmy ghosts were created by smudging white chalk inside a ghost cut out.   Details were added with a tiny brush and black tempera.
