Mixed Media Holiday Reindeer


This is a super cute retro style reindeer project that I found on Deep Space Sparkle. She gives wonderful instructions as well as a tutorial.
I painted about it previously HERE.

Grade 4-6 students sketched out their reindeer head on 9 x 12"  manila paper.


Then painted it using tempera paint. One colour plus white (review tints).



Next class, once dry, outline all the pencil lines in charcoal pencil and blend. 
Then cut out the head.


Fold a sheet of brown construction paper in half and draw one antler. Cut out and you have two matching. 


Glue onto the head and background paper.


Finally, we added a collar and a pom pom nose.

Some finished artworks!
