This was a great oil pastel resist project. We started out with a drawing lesson. The kids sketched their scarecrow in pencil first. I started with a simple lollie pop shape.
I continued with simple shapes to create the scarecrow.
Once the project was broken down to easy steps, the kids could now add their own details.
They did a wonderful job! Considering a few where skeptical at first. I remind them...with out practice you can't draw. Here is a few of our kindergarten scarecrows.
First drawn with pencil. Then traced with black permanent maker.
Next the kids colored in with oil pastels. They then used a watercolor wash for the sky. Painting over the entire picture to watch the watercolor resist the oil pastels.
Then girls decided they wanted their scarecrow to be a girl. We talked about how the dress would be tied at the bottom to hold in the hay.
Most the scarecrows look like they made friends with the crows!
Happy Halloween.. Boo!
