Yay! 3rd grade classes finished their 1st project. I absolutely love, love, how creative these kids are. I saw a lot of experimentation with the oil pastel, and may different approaches to the subject. As students finished their first project (the surreal object composition in oil pastel) I had them start a small side project to compliment the ideas they had just learned. Using colored chalk pastels and black or gray paper, they outlined one object, multiple times. I encouraged them to experiment with the chalk pastel, mixing colors, erasing, and pushing the media to see what it could do. The results from students that finished the project were stunning! Here is a gallery of their work!
