Last week I was fortunate enough to be invited into my daughters Grade 4/5 class to do an art lesson. I always look forward to the opportunity to work with intermediate students. The toughest thing for me is deciding on a project that I can do in one hour or in one afternoon. Here is what I came up with.
In one afternoon we touched upon many concepts including colour choice, blending colours, proportion, overlapping and line. The flowers were drawn and coloured with chalk pastel and outlined in oil pastel. The backgrounds were painted with watercolor.
