This is a fun Spring-themed wax resist lesson I found on the Kids Artists blog
So I gave my Grade 6 students a handout showing different types of spring flowers.
They chose one to draw nice and big on a sheet of heavy white paper.
Then, using a white wax crayon and a ruler, draw vertical lines or dashes down the page.
These will act as stylized 'raindrops'. Make sure to press HARD with the wax crayon.
Then paint with watercolours- the wax crayons lines will magically emerge- kids love this part.
I don't know why, but sooo many students chose to draw snowdrops- it was, by far,
the most popular flower.
|I like how this student did dotted lines- she wanted a more realistic looking rain and I think it is very effective.|
