Color Block Portrait Reveal

Grade Level: 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12

Take blind contour drawing to a fun new level with invisible drawing media. Students will use a Sakura Cray-Pas Color Extender oil pastel to draw a contour portrait of a classmate. The line will be nearly invisible, but leave a mark in oil which serves as a resist. Students then apply color, in the form of bleeding tissue paper misted with water, to magically reveal the subject! The process is so fun it will be hard to stop at just one!
