The 5th grade made these awesome mixed media paintings for their Rodeo Art projects.
We started out with painting the backgrounds using watercolor, where they learned about blending colors, and how to make their skies have gradients.
Once they were dry, we worked from the background laying down the tree line using brown and black oil pastels.
Then we added pumpkins, emphasizing proper perspective and then adding highlights and shadows. Then we added the hay stacks, and finally the cow. These turned out fabulous!
