This has been a great session! Wow, the times goes by fast. Session 1 is completely full, but please dont hesitate to call and be put on a waiting list for any spots that may open up or to be placed on the schedule for Session 2.
I really wanted to use chalk pastels for this lesson, however I was nervous because I didnt want the kids to smudge the chalk everywhere and be upset that their work didnt look anything like a dog! So, I stuck with oil pastels, which still has a tendency to smudge, but its a little bit more controllable than chalk.
We started off with a drawing lesson. We practiced this twice so they could get the features down. We started drawing it on white cardstock. Then they started coloring it in with oil pastels. I just ASSUMED they were going to use the natural colors of dogs, brown, black, white, etc, but everyone knows what happens when you assume! So, I have some dogs that are quite unique and really cute to look at.
Here are some of the results. I tried so hard to photograph every childs work, but with 90 students, I just couldnt! :)
