To create the polar bears, I placed photographs of polar bears on the tables and we chatted about the kinds of lines and shapes we see in the shape of the head and the facial features. We used white chalk pastels and black oil pastels to create the fur and eyes. I demonstrated creating some shadows with charcoal. Once they were finished, the artists cut out the polar bears and glued them to their background. These have received many compliments at Buffalo Elementary!
