This week, we had Monday off, Field Day on Tuesday, and a Festival on Wednesday. The art room was pretty chaotic on the days we were here, so I decided to have students do a fun project that joins in with the summer spirit. Students use oil pastels on tag board to use zig-zag lines to design a tie-dye swirl. Then, student paint over everything with black watercolors. They LOVED this, and many students chose to do it a couple of times!
Concepts: Color Unity, Wax resist
