Thanks to an article by Cassie Stephens, art teacher extraordinaire, our grade 6 classes worked in groups of four to create these beautiful spilled crayons. Each student was given a sheet of black construction paper and laid out so they all touched and were masking taped in place. They each had a crayon pattern and amongst their group had to overlap and decide what colors the crayons would be where they shared with a fellow student. Once the patterns were agreed upon and traced with a white chalk pastel they chose two colors of chalk pastels in the same family of color to shade in the crayons. The students loved the project and I loved the outcome. It’s a great project we will do again and again.
