Use listing coloring pages and one of these crayon processes for your following classroom art lesson.
Trace in the photocopied picture outline with crayon.
Thick lines perform most optimally.
Brush on the whole page with thin paint. Only use one color.
The waxed lines will resist the paint and also 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 any number of colors.
The crayon lines will make the photo easier to paint.
They will stop edges bleeding into the other.
This is not a resist but it’s a great extension with the previous activities.
Paint the image with watercolors.
When the paint is dry, use crayons to incorporate detail and depth of color.
Rip off a tiny small note which is regarding the size a matchbox.
Use a crayon to scribble thickly on top of the paper.
Turn the paper over and taking advantage of your thumb rub the crayon on to the image.
This results in a very soft smooth effect.
Color a place of the picture using a textured object placed underneath.
Sandpaper, string, crumpled paper, bricks, bark, leaves, signs and rocks can create interesting patterns. Experiment using a part of blank paper first.
Use grated pieces or shavings of crayon to create a swirling effect.
Sprinkle the crayon on to the picture and after that rub them with your thumb.
This is successful if you are using different colors together.
It makes effective animal fur, storm clouds or grass.
Go on the outline of the image with black crayon.
Color the remainder of the picture thickly with crayon.
If possible use a tiny piece of cotton wool or cloth to polish the image.
Heat from the friction of rubbing melts the crayon and creates a smooth shiny effect.
Apply a little amount of vegetable oil with a cotton wool ball.
Gently rub the oil within the back of the picture.
The oil is likely to make the picture almost transparent.
Students could be given the oil soaked balls inside a paint tray.
Encourage these to look at and in the picture to spread the oil.
Hang the photo in a very classroom window to produce a stained glass effect.
