Use listing 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 most effectively.
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 in the whole page with thin paint. Only use one color.
Draw on the lines with crayon.
Paint the picture with many colors.
The crayon lines can make the image simpler to paint.
They stop edges bleeding into one another.
This is not a resist but it is a great extension from the previous activities.
Paint the picture with watercolors.
When the paint is dry, use crayons to incorporate detail and depth of color.
Rip off a little notepad that’s regarding the height and width of a matchbox.
Use a crayon to scribble thickly onto the paper.
Turn the paper over and taking advantage of your thumb rub the crayon on to the picture.
This generates a very soft smooth effect.
Color a region of the image using a textured object placed underneath.
Sandpaper, string, crumpled paper, bricks, bark, leaves, signs and rocks can produce interesting patterns. Experiment using a piece 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 all of them with your thumb.
This is successful the use of 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 piece of cotton wool or cloth to polish the image.
Heat in the friction of rubbing melts the crayon and produces a smooth shiny effect.
Apply a small amount of vegetable oil to a cotton wool ball.
Gently rub the oil on the back of the picture.
The oil could make the picture almost transparent.
Students can be in the oil soaked balls in a very paint tray.
Encourage these phones check out and within the picture to spread the oil.
Hang the picture in the classroom window to generate a stained glass effect.
