The intention was to make more art for the calendar fundraiser. So the size was a given as were the range of materials we could use. I have mentioned this fundraiser on a previous post.
The children made their backgrounds first by cutting out two leaf shapes, one little, one larger. They traced around them using pen, covering a page with leaf shapes. They coloured between the shapes using a sky coloured wax crayon. They put leaf coloured dye over the entire page.
Their owls were drawn and coloured using crayons with photos as a reference. They covered the owls with a yellow dye and cut them out and glued them to their backgrounds.
