2nd graders read the story The Little Scarecrow Boy by Margaret Wise Brown. Students then reviewed shapes, vertical, and horizontal lines. By knowing these art words and being able to draw them, students were able to create a wonderful scarecrow drawing. Together, we drew the scarecrow step by step. Students then reviewed how to carefully outline their drawings with oil pastel by staying on top of the original pencil line.
Finally, students used watercolor to paint in their beautiful drawings. We reviewed proper paint techniques and how to hold our paint brushes to have the most control of our paint.
They turned out great! Students did a great job following directions!
