Students will draw the outline of a fish using glue. They will then complete the picture with oil pastels. The glue dries clear, leaving the black paper to show through in between the pastel.
What You Need:
What You Do:
- Black construction paper (or poster paper)
- White glue (we used Crayola® School Glue, which dries clear)
- Oil pastels (we used Sakura Cray Pas® Junior Artist oil pastels)
- Students draw the outline of a fish on large paper. Black poster paper works best.
- Encourage them to add scales, fins and any other detail they would like.
- Students then trace over their drawn lines with glue and allow the glue to dry (preferably overnight).
- Students then color in the areas between the glue lines, with oil pastel. The brighter the better.
