Fun with charcoals and pastels!
The Creatrix Kids had no fear diving into these artists mediums.
These wonderful little Creators made their own masterpieces while I walked them through applying pastels and charcoals onto newsprint. Each one of them did a wonderful job in listening to the instructions then trying it on their own. I was thrilled to see them blending their pastels in order to create gradients. I could tell each one was working on applying more or less pressure when using the pastels. They had fun blending with their hands or napkins.
We went into creating clouds in the background and it was a joy watching their faces light up when I showed them how to make clouds and how you can easily highlight them. When we got to the tree part I let them choose whatever tree they wanted since I don’t want to limit these Creators. It was fun showing each kid different techniques on how to work on their tree.
After our trees were done it was free-time for them to explore whatever they wanted to create with the pastels and charcoals. They all used a few of the techniques I just showed them to make their free-time piece. I can already see their unique styles and I am looking forward to our next class now that I know what each Creator likes.
Thank you for sharing your time with me in creating! Until next Monday……
