5th Grade Chameleons Near Completion

Using warm and cool color schemes, 5th graders are using oil pastels to color their creatures. We have dubbed them "Art Chameleons"as we jazzed them up a bit. Then using a wet on wet watercolor technique, they are using the opposite colors to paint the background.  They first wet the paper with water, then drop blobs of paint into the wet. No brushing is required as the paints co-mingle producing an impressionist view of foliage in the background.
