Second Graders created these colorful owls for our Original Works Fundraiser. We began by looking at a variety of owls and owl art. Then I demonstrated a few ways students with artist's block could begin. Students did a rough draft on scrap paper and then began the final copy. Owls were drawn with pencil, outlined, and then colored in with crayon or colored pencil. Borders were added to the background page and then water colored with one or two liquid watercolor paints. Lastly students used torn construction paper to create a branch and glued the branch and owl to the page. I love how each owl seems to have his or her own little personality.
