These beautiful paintings were done in one class period. To save a bit of time we used tan construction paper as our base. Mixing the skin tone would have taken another class.
Students were given a few tips, like placement and size of eyes, and how to 'double dip' their paintbrushes for the hair, but for the most part this was a free painting session.
I try hard to make sure we do a few exploratory lessons in each grade throughout the year; after all - that's what being an artist is all about!
Happy Easter friends!
