Chalk & Oil Pastel Still-Life

Students in 4th Grade worked on still-life drawings for the Fine Arts Fair coming up in May.  These drawings are a big hit with parents and faculty because they are so vibrant.  It is a really simple project!  First, we look at and discuss still-life paintings, draw a simple vase and table, and add at least 4 simple flowers in the vase.  Some students got really creative with their vases and flowers!  We used an oil pastel to draw with and filled in the spaces with chalk because the chalk wipes right off of the oil, leaving a nice black line outlining the shapes.
