Ohh la la, I am liking these chalk pastels! Before this school year, I had never used them before. This fifth grade class used them on black paper to create an abstract landscape. Students drew three hills with a building and then divided the hills into smaller sections onto which they could draw patterns. I shared with students that line, shape and color are all elements or art. With these simple concepts all types of art can be created… including a lovely abstract landscape. The room was silent as students were drawing and coloring their artwork and their hard work paid off with these bright beautiful creations!
