Aili and I just kicked off the next batch of art lessons with pastels. We used both Oil and Chalk Pastels and she ended up liking oil pastels (aka Cray-pas) better. We did some studies in highlight and cast shadow on objects like balls and apples…and then we did highlights and shadows on flowers…and then we drew under water scenes! It was a fun class. I now remember how messy pastels are!!!
Next time we are doing block printing…so Aili’s homework was to draw a design to carve out…I can’t wait to see how it turns out!
