Our Home School Art Club has been super busy, as always!
In October they worked on this amazing OWL ART.
These were done using oil pastels on black paper.
Each student selected a photo of an owl to paint from our resource files.
Then they transferred the image in pencil to their black paper and selected a 'palette' of colors to use for their painting - which simply means matching each color in the photo to an oil pastel stick, which is then kept separated from the set until the project is done. Students learned to press lightly, heavily, or to layer colors to get desired colors, textures, and other effects.
