Surprising Resists
Morton, Stephie
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v106 n7 p44-45 Mar 2007
In this article, the author discusses an art adventure with her third, fourth, and fifth grade enrichment kids to the Fort Collins Museum of Contemporary Art in Colorado. The author demonstrates and teaches her students how to use the art tissue paper and oil pastel complementing the creative spirit of the Jaune Quick-to-See Smith work presented in the museum. The art tissue paper and oil pastel are the perfect material combination to simulate both the bold linear design and brightly colored, translucent washes of the paintings. The surprise factor and pure fun of this process is also wonderful for releasing any concern for failure that traditional watercolor technique can bring to young painters.
