Owls, 5th Grade

These beautiful owls were made by my fifth graders.  This project took three, 30 minute, classes.  To begin this project, students drew an owl that had interesting lines or patterns onto black paper.  Next, students painted a different piece of paper with with two analogous colors.  After the background had dried, students cut their owl out and glued it to their painted background.

 I think these are just beautiful!


  1. These are Beautiful! Very Laurel Burch-esque. :) The painted paper backgrounds give them each a unique look. Nice work!

  2. These are great- I love the oil pastel on black paper. Thnx for sharing!
