Welcome back! So glad to see all of you! This week, 2nd grade is going to be starting this cute lil polar bear, inspired by the fabulous Lauralee Chambers! Here's a link to her Insta account, if you want to check her out (which ya should!) @2art.chambers Here's how we created ours! Materials: Crayola Watercolors Sax liquid watercolors Crayola oil pastels black & white pencils scissors Big Kid's choice paintbrushes Day 1: Look at images of Polar Bears, and sketch out our own! Here's a video of me drawing it out, that I'll show my students. Feel free to show yours as well! After we draw the polar bear, we'll add the black oil pastel outline, and smudge it with our fingers to create shading or Value! If we have time we'll move onto painting our background using the white pastel for snow flakes, and watercolors to paint with. The example on the left is painted with Crayola watercolors. For more vibrant colors you can use the liquid watercolors! We'll cut out our bear and glue it to our background, after our sky dries Stay tuned for some awesome art!
