Second Grade Works with Oil Pastels

Second graders at Bradfield can tell you a lot about working with oil pastels. Not only are they are so fun to work with, they can produce amazing textures and big, bold colors. They spent the first couple of weeks in art experimenting with pastels, which resulted in these wonderful little works of art!

First, they created a scribble design on their paper. Then, they began filling in each closed off area, or shape, with a different method of using oil pastels.

They mixed, blended, scratched, rubbed, and brushed over the pastels with watered down paint. The challenge was to think of a different technique for each area.

They've done a great job. Don't you agree?
