Use listing coloring pages and something of the crayon approaches for your following classroom art lesson.
Trace on 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 almost all of the picture with crayon. Leave some areas white.
Brush in the whole page with thin paint. Only use one color.
Draw within the lines with crayon.
Paint the photo with a variety of colors.
The crayon lines could make the image simpler to paint.
They stop edges bleeding into the other person.
This is not a resist but it is a fantastic extension of 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 tiny sheet of paper that is certainly about the height and width of a matchbox.
Use a crayon to scribble thickly onto the paper.
Turn the paper over and ultizing your thumb rub the crayon on to the photo.
This produces a very soft smooth effect.
Color an area of the image which has a textured object placed underneath.
Sandpaper, string, crumpled paper, bricks, bark, leaves, signs and rocks can make interesting patterns. Experiment using a piece of blank paper first.
Use grated pieces or shavings of crayon to create a swirling effect.
Sprinkle the crayon on to the picture and then rub these with your thumb.
This works well if you are using 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 little little bit 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 with a cotton wool ball.
Gently rub the oil within the back of the photo.
The oil can make the photo almost transparent.
Students could be given the oil soaked balls in the paint tray.
Encourage the crooks to go over and over the picture to spread the oil.
Hang the image in a classroom window to make a stained glass effect.
