Today we created Rainforest birds. I showed the students how to draw the bird and then we added leaves and flowers in the background. The bird was colored completely with oil pastels. As I always do with my students, I had them blend colors together with their fingers. The leaves and flowers were only outlined with oil pastels. Then watercolors were used to fill in the background.
These turned out wonderful. I am so proud of the 4th graders!!
