Use print coloring pages and one of the crayon approaches for the following classroom art lesson.
Trace over the photocopied picture outline with crayon.
Thick lines work best.
Brush within the whole page with thin paint. Only use one color.
The waxed lines will resist the paint as well as the picture will glow through.
Color most 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 photo with a variety of colors.
The crayon lines could make the image easier to paint.
They will eradicate edges bleeding into the other person.
This is not a resist but it is an excellent extension in 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 little small note that’s about the size a matchbox.
Use a crayon to scribble thickly on the paper.
Turn the paper over and using your thumb rub the crayon on to the photo.
This results in a very soft smooth effect.
Color an area of the picture with a textured object placed underneath.
Sandpaper, string, crumpled paper, bricks, bark, leaves, signs and rocks can make interesting patterns. Experiment which has a part of blank paper first.
Use grated pieces or shavings of crayon to generate a swirling effect.
Sprinkle the crayon on to the picture and then rub them your thumb.
This works well if you utilize different colors together.
It makes effective animal fur, storm clouds or grass.
Go on the outline of the photo with black crayon.
Color the remainder of the photo thickly with crayon.
If possible use a tiny little bit of cotton wool or cloth to polish the image.
Heat through the friction of rubbing melts the crayon and produces a smooth shiny effect.
Apply a smaller amount of vegetable oil to your cotton wool ball.
Gently rub the oil on the back of the photo.
The oil could make the picture almost transparent.
Students might be because of the oil soaked balls in a paint tray.
Encourage the crooks to look at and within the picture to spread the oil.
Hang the picture in a classroom window to create a stained glass effect.
