"A Faithful Attempt" is designed to showcase a variety of K-12 art lessons, the work of my art students, as well as other art-related topics. Projects shown are my take on other art teacher's lessons, lessons found in books or else designed by myself.
Thanks for visiting!
LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT I acknowledge, with deep respect, that I am gathered on Treaty 7 territory.

Wax Resist Bookmarks

I found this cute and easy activity on the Lost Button Studio website
It's a good project if you have scraps of leftover cardstock/heavy paper, which I always do. 
My Grade 1 students used neon oil pastels to draw patterns and designs on the card,
then did a watercolour wash over the top. 

You always gets 'oohs and aaahs' from the little ones when they see the oil pastels resisting the paint. Let dry, laminate, punch a hole at the top and add some yarn.
