Patterning and warm and cool colors
Oil pastel and glue
Students made several drawings from a still life in the classroom. They chose their favorite composition to make into a final piece. Using glue as their pencil to create bold outlines, students drew out their objects. Students learned about warm and cool colors, patterning, and foreground and background in this lesson, all prominent elements you will see in this piece.
