Oil Pastel Flowers

Standard

My Grade Two classes did these. They have a play that they do every year called “Going Buggy” This seemed like a good lesson to add to the bug lessons we have done in the past-bugs like plants after all.

I take out all the black pans from our watercolors to keep kids from painting every thing black because I do that, I try to find fun projects to do to use up the black paint.

Students were instructed to create either warm or cool colored flowers and then the centers were to be the opposite.

When finished, they painted black around the flowers.

They are so colorful and perfect for young ones.

I had my K/1 class, do a guided drawing of a cow. Some wanted 4 legs, udders, and tails so they did. Others copied Peter Diem.

For this lesson, my kindergarten students drew a cat and flowers in oil pastel and then painted over it with black water color.

I like watercolor paintings to be bright and cheery so I take out the black and brown paint. I have a lot of black watercolor paint because I take it our of our paint trays.

This lesson allowed us to use up some of those black paint trays. The hardest part is getting kindergarten students to color hard enough that the water color resists the paints.

Leaves with Lines

Standard

I wanted a simple lesson that tied in with lines and fall so we did these. Students looked at pictures of various fall leaves (hard to find in our area so we used images from the internet).

They drew a large leaf or several small ones with veins and stems.

Rainy Rainbow

Standard

The kindergarten team was learning about rainbows and weather and this lesson was perfect.

I saw a rain image similar to this somewhere on the internet and thought it would be perfect if we added a rainbow.

Oil pastel and water color was what we used to create these images.

Students of course loved the AH! moment when the oil pastel popped through the black  and blue paint.
