This is a perfect winter art lesson for all the "Frozen" fans out there. My Grade 3 students loved this project! To start off, I put a photo of Olaf up on my big screen TV. The students were able to refer to this while they did a pencil drawing of Olaf. 

One student also brought in her Olaf stuffie, so we had him up on display for reference as well :)

Once Olaf was drawn, I showed students how to lightly shade one side of him 
using a grey coloured pencil. Then we cut him out.

We then worked on the background- we drew three layers on light blue construction paper: the sky, some simple hills and a frozen pond. We coloured this using chalk pastels and varying the direction of our line: diagonal for the shy, curved lines for the hills and horizontal lines for the ice. 
We blended, blended and blended some more with our fingers.

Then Olaf was glued on- use white glue because glue sticks didn't work for us.

My sample

We cut out arms and 'hair' using brown paper.

They came out so cute and happy!
