Chalk Pastel Owls

4th graders looked at artworks by local Green Bay artist Holly Hebel. Holly Hebel is inspired by midwest life and her artwork contains images of barns and old houses. The medium she uses chalk pastels in bright, vibrant colors. She doesn't blend her pastels, rather layers the colors and also leaves some of the background peeking through. 4th graders drew owls and colored them in with chalk pastels using the same method as Holly Hebel, no blending, just layering. They also looked at some videos to learn some fun facts about owls too!
