Leapin' Lizards!

Little Artists got messy on Day 3 as they created their Leapin' Lizards with pastels. 

First they drew their lizards in black oil pastel, pressing hard! 

Then they filled in the spaces with colorful soft pastels while learning how to blend and soften colors with their fingers. (We had damp towels nearby for wiping off fingers.) 

Blending and blending

Final important step: go over the black lines with oil pastel again. 

My sample (I always like the kids' work better!)

We had a little spare time, so we also made another reptile: a pop-up snake!
