Dragonfly Art Project

My boys have an age gap of 7 years so they don't get the opportunity to work together that often.
Art is one of those subjects that brings them together and it is something they look forward to.
This week the boys did the "Dragonfly from Ecuador" art lesson over at Art Achieve.
They used oil pastels and watercolors to create a resist painting.   This lesson also focused on how to use the media to create an opaque and transparent effect in their art  work.
First they drew the dragonfly following Art Achieve's step-by-step lesson plans.
Then they colored in their dragonfly drawing oil pastels using warm colors.

When they finished coloring, they used watercolors to create a resist.
Little Man thought this was just the neatest thing and his favorite part of the project:)


The boys love these lessons!  They are always very happy with their work when they've finished.
