Drawing with oil pastelsThis week the kids drew some incredible foxes!
We began the class by doing some "warm up" work in sketchbooks. The kids followed step by step as we created foxes by breaking it down into familiar shapes. Once the kids were warmed up, we moved on to drawing foxes with pale colored pencil on black construction paper.
If you look at these "work in progress" photos below you can see the initial shapes that we used to make the foxes. The head was a triangle, the body was an oval, eyes were a circle and so on. After the initial drawings were completed, the kids traced over their lines with black oil pastel.
What I love about this project is watching as the personality of each fox emerge. They are so wonderfully unique and unquestionably adorable. Take a look and see what your artist created!
