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?

My cat was pink and lots of colours and I got to finish it today. I liked using the food dye to create a wash on my batik cat.

My cat was sitting. I really liked the idea Miss Sharp had to do batik. I would like to do  it again. It looks like it is black. To do the texture on the background I had to get stretchy net stuff and put it under the paper.

We did batik cats. First we had a pencil and practiced drawing cats. Then we used another paper to draw our cat using chalk pastel. We did the background using blue stretch stuff to rub the texture. We coloured it in using oil pastel, then we painted the sheet with food dye. My cat turned out good J
