My art club students will be using oil pastels to create a picture on canvas board. When completed, these drawings should appear just as oil paints from afar. They are easy to blend using your fingers and additional color can be applied to get lots of texture.
The students were especially excited when they got their canvas board! They each did some sketching first so they knew what they were going to do on the actual canvas. Each student made a very light pencil sketch on the canvas board and then began to apply colors.
Because my students range from ages 7-13, I usually get a wide range of abilities and interests. Animals are always a popular subject! Some students like to do animeé types of animals and others go for the more realistic type! I enjoy the diversity!
Here are some pictures of our oil pastel adventures!
