8 year olds
The children spent time practicing how to blend with chalk, prior to working on their picture. I showed them how to run white chalk into coloured chalk. They identified which side light (moonlight or sun at dusk) would come from. They have responded to this well in their art.
They began by making a detailed sketch of a lighthouse. This was then drawn on black paper, using wax black crayons. The chalk doesn't cover the crayon, therefore the lines standout.
