My Art 2 kids are working on colored pencil projects this week. I like teaching them several different techniques using this medium and they end up with great looking drawings when they are done. I usually teach them how to work with colored pencils prior to teaching them how to paint. Showing them how to layer and mix colored pencils gives them a pre-view on how they will be working with paint. Some of the kids struggle at first because I do not allow the colors black and white (sometimes just a bit) to be used in their projects. They have to figure out how to make those colors using other colors.
Can't wait to show you the finished product.
