Use print coloring pages and one of the crayon approaches for the following classroom art lesson.
Trace on the photocopied picture outline with crayon.
Thick lines work best.
Brush over the whole page with thin paint. Only use one color.
The waxed lines will resist the paint and the picture will glow through.
Color a lot of the picture with crayon. Leave some areas white.
Brush in the whole page with thin paint. Only use one color.
Draw on the lines with crayon.
Paint the image with many colors.
The crayon lines is likely to make the photo better to paint.
They stop edges bleeding into the other person.
This is not a resist but it is an incredible extension from the previous activities.
Paint the image with watercolors.
When the paint is dry, use crayons to include detail and depth of color.
Rip off a smaller small note that’s about the size of a matchbox.
Use a crayon to scribble thickly onto the paper.
Turn the paper over and ultizing your thumb rub the crayon on to the picture.
This results in a very soft smooth effect.
Color a place of the image which has a textured object placed underneath.
Sandpaper, string, crumpled paper, bricks, bark, leaves, signs and rocks can create interesting patterns. Experiment having a piece of blank paper first.
Use grated pieces or shavings of crayon to create a swirling effect.
Sprinkle the crayon on to the photo and after that rub them with your thumb.
This works well if you are using different colors together.
It makes effective animal fur, storm clouds or grass.
Go over the outline of the photo with black crayon.
Color the remainder of the photo thickly with crayon.
If possible use a tiny piece of cotton wool or cloth to polish the photo.
Heat from the friction of rubbing melts the crayon and produces a smooth shiny effect.
Apply a tiny amount of vegetable oil with a cotton wool ball.
Gently rub the oil on the back of the photo.
The oil is likely to make the image almost transparent.
Students could be in the oil soaked balls inside a paint tray.
Encourage these phones go over and in the picture to spread the oil.
Hang the photo in a very classroom window to create a stained glass effect.
