Experiments with Chalk and Glue
Below are the sample sheets that the 3rd graders worked on before moving on their big pieces (which will be posted here soon as well.) I had them practice drawing with glue a few weeks ago. First, they drew an animal at the top of their page, in pencil. Then, at the bottom of their page, they drew a variety of different lines, just using the glue bottle. Last, they rotated their paper and traced their animal with glue. This week, we are getting ready to add chalk pastels to their larger projects. To get a feel for what chalk is like to work with, they are experimenting with color layering and blending techniques on their sample sheets.
