Try with 3rd. These were done by 4th & 5th. Painted the flowers and the blue backgrounds with tempera. They were instructed that at least one flower should overlap the edge of the painting. It took 2 weeks for most students to complete their paintings. Students then outlined everything in black oil pastels and added lines of pastel into each space in similar colors to recreate the van gogh's texture
It would be really cute to draw little girls all dressed up in their costumes in this style.
Avocado----Giclee, Archival, Matted Print of an Original Oil Pastel Painting of an Avocado Half with Pit
Found this on Flickr. Apparently the ceramic teacher's name is Janet Burns (I always attempt to credit the artists and instructors.) In any case these are the cleverest little pinch pots. I'm thinking kids of all ages would enjoy and feel successful at making one of these! Pinch pot, add details, then acrylic paint, and embellishments! FUN!
