For this lesson, students looked at images from the book and created these portraits of scared faces and wild hair. We used permanent marker for the line drawings and oil pastel to color it in.
I was gifted a large supply of pipettes so we used those to add water to our nearly empty watercolor boxes. They dripped the colors to the top of the head and then either used a straw to blow the paint or the pipettes to move the paint to create hair.
And if the kids didn’t scrape enough out of the oval paint trays, I put them in plastic cups and added water!
I put that paint into small medicine cups and distributed to the next class.
