Use listing coloring pages the other of the crayon approaches for the following classroom art lesson.
Trace within the photocopied picture outline with crayon.
Thick lines perform best.
Brush within 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 almost all of the picture with crayon. Leave some areas white.
Brush over the whole page with thin paint. Only use one color.
Draw over the lines with crayon.
Paint the photo with any number of colors.
The crayon lines could make the image much easier to paint.
They will stop edges bleeding into one another.
This is not a resist however it is a fantastic extension with 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 tiny notepad that’s about 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 location of the image having a textured object placed underneath.
Sandpaper, string, crumpled paper, bricks, bark, leaves, signs and rocks can cause interesting patterns. Experiment with a little bit of blank paper first.
Use grated pieces or shavings of crayon to make a swirling effect.
Sprinkle the crayon on to the photo and then rub these with your thumb.
This works well the use of different colors together.
It makes effective animal fur, storm clouds or grass.
Go in the outline of the picture with black crayon.
Color the remainder of the picture thickly with crayon.
If possible use a smaller bit of cotton wool or cloth to polish the picture.
Heat from the friction of rubbing melts the crayon and creates a smooth shiny effect.
Apply a tiny 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 image almost transparent.
Students may be given the oil soaked balls inside a paint tray.
Encourage these to check out and in the picture to spread the oil.
Hang the image inside a classroom window to generate a stained glass effect.
