Pattern Owls



First graders made these adorable pattern owls in two 55 minute art classes. We read The Little White Owl and Owl Moon for inspiration and spent the first day thinking of line designs and sketching. The second day, we used oil pastel and watercolor paints to finish. The results were so bright and colorful!

  6. Love this project!! I just did it with my 1st graders and they turned out awesome. I started with sharpies first, colored with oil pastels and then came back with baby oil and q-tips over the oil pastels to give it a more painterly look! Thanks for sharing!!
