Do you want to make a snowman?

Prep students explored oil pastel and wash techniques to create their own snowmen.

 

The first step was to draw a snowman, we decided it needed 3 circles each one slightly smaller than the first, starting at the bottom of the page. Next we added a face (complete with carrot nose), arms and maybe some buttons or a bow tie, some had hats too.

 

After the snowman was drawn we needed to colour it in using oil pastel. We had to press very hard to create a barrier so the wash later wouldn’t cover our snowmen. It was hard work to do this bit.

 

When our snowman was coloured we put down newspaper and made sure our art smocks were on, then we painted over the whole page with blue food dye. We could see if we missed any colouring. This was the best bit of the project..

 

So…….. Do you want to build a Snowman?
