We Love Owls!

Owls' faces are so expressive! I believe owls are the perfect subject for oil pastel painting because of their large eyes and unique facial patterns, shapes, and feather textures. 

Plus, they are the perfect subject for Halloween! 

For this project, we extended our Halloween-themed inchies project to include these little oil pastel owls. These owls were created by adults and measure 4 by 4 inches.

They were painted with oil pastels on heavy black    4 by 4 inch sulphite (construction) paper.
The inchie owls below were created by children ages 6 through 12, some of whom had never used oil pastels (or even heard of them) before this lesson. I think their owls are awesome!
