Check out what the artists at Buffalo Elementary are creating!
After studying a photograph of a sheep, we used simple lines and shapes to draw a sheep with a black oil paste. To create the look of soft wool, students colored with a white chalk pastel and blended it with a finger. Students could use the pink pastel for the inside of the sheep's ears and the nose. The next class, artists used black, purple, and blue tempera paint to create a night sky and added snow by tapping the wooden end of their paintbrush into white paint and then onto their paper. The last step was to carefully cut out the sheep and glue it onto the background.
