Oil Pastel batik

Mr. Sacco's eighth grade art students created these oil pastel batik drawings based
on objects from observation. Students first made sketches of objects and selected
the best one for their design. Next, they worked on design using their object as a center of interest and adding details and a border,

After some practice blending with oil pastels, students colored their drawing with warm/cool color contrast and value in mind. Students left a small uncolored border around all their shapes so that the final brush work using India ink could be added
to increase contrast and emphasis.

Medium: oil pastel and India ink
