Animals in Snow

This lesson was based on the work of Todd Young. He does these adorable paintings of animals in the snow that he sells on Etsy and other places.


For this lesson, the students used oil pastel to draw the trees, stars, moons and their favorite animal or animals. They used watercolor paint for the sky so that the oil pastel would resist the paint and the stars, moon and trees could pop through.

This student asked if he could do an elephant. Of course, that kind of creativity is always welcome.
