Tempera Nutcrackers

Nutcracker 2nd gradeHere’s what my students are doing this week, drawing a Nutcracker and then painting him with tempera paint. They started with a 6″ x 18″ sheet of paper that was folded in half twice to create some guide lines. For a PDF tutorial, see yesterday’s posting. If students follow the directions, the drawing will fill the entire paper, with proportioned arms and legs. Not a bad lesson to learn while making some festive artwork.
