Blended gradiant snowmen - grade 3
Snowmen make for fantastic drawing projects, because they're relatively easy for children to draw, and they lend themselves really well to gradient blending. I originally did a project similar to this last year with grade 5/6, but I decided to give it a try with grade 3 this year, and I'm really pleased with the results!!
I began by giving students a demonstration of how to blend using chalk pastels:
It took them 2 periods of about 40 minutes to finish, although some finished much quicker. They're so proud of how real their snowmen look!
