It's always interesting to me to learn which projects end up as favorites with my students. Sometimes I just know, other times, I'm surprised. Such was the case with these tint and shade landscapes with Egyptian pyramids - a real crowd pleaser.
After using acrylics to paint our subjects, the children created three different patterns on colored construction paper using Sharpie and oil pastels. We looked at some of the colorful blankets that often adorn camels in the Middle East as inspiration. These were cut up into squares to create a border for their paintings. Work created by 5-10 year olds.
