Use listing coloring pages and one of these crayon methods for your following classroom art lesson.
Trace on 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 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 image with a variety of colors.
The crayon lines can make the image better to paint.
They will stop edges bleeding into the other.
This is not a resist but it’s a great extension of the previous activities.
Paint the picture with watercolors.
When the paint is dry, use crayons to include detail and depth of color.
Rip off a smaller notepad that is about the size a matchbox.
Use a crayon to scribble thickly on top of the paper.
Turn the paper over and utilizing your thumb rub the crayon on to the photo.
This produces a very soft smooth effect.
Color a region of the picture which has a textured object placed underneath.
Sandpaper, string, crumpled paper, bricks, bark, leaves, signs and rocks can make interesting patterns. Experiment using a little bit of blank paper first.
Use grated pieces or shavings of crayon to produce a swirling effect.
Sprinkle the crayon on to the picture after which rub these with your thumb.
This works well if you utilize different colors together.
It makes effective animal fur, storm clouds or grass.
Go in the outline of the image with black crayon.
Color the remainder of the photo thickly with crayon.
If possible use a smaller bit of cotton wool or cloth to polish the photo.
Heat in the friction of rubbing melts the crayon and results in a smooth shiny effect.
Apply a small amount of vegetable oil to your cotton wool ball.
Gently rub the oil on the back of the picture.
The oil could make the image almost transparent.
Students might be given the oil soaked balls inside a paint tray.
Encourage the crooks to go over and in the picture to spread the oil.
Hang the photo in the classroom window to make a stained glass effect.
