These scarecrows graced our hallway for most of the fall. They are inspired by the blog: http://www.artprojectsforkids.org/. Both of these picture were created by Grade One students. We did the drawings step by step, line by line. We used the same abc boom language that we use to teach proper letter formations in language arts which helped the kids make the lines properly. The scarecrow is outlined with black pastel and painted with watercolour. Students were encouraged to let their watercolour "pool" on the page to create different tones of the same colour.
