8 year olds
The children spent today making turtle art.
They began by drawing a turtle with photos for reference.
They prepared their paper by ripping the edges and screwing up the paper.
After smoothing it out, they applied earth coloured oil pastels.
They covered the oil pastel with black acrylic paint. Once it was dry they etched their turtle image. I encouraged detail and large areas that are scratched away to expose the colour beneath.
