1st grade Winter Wax Resist!!!

The first grade just made some awesome winter inspired art! They did drawings of a snowy landscape and a snowman with a wax resist!

Here's how they did it.
First they drew three circles to represent the snowman.

Then they created trees and mountains for the horizon.

 Next they colored in the trees and used a blue crayon to add some shading and value to the snowman. They also used a white crayon to draw snowflakes in the sky that you cannot see... yet!

Last they used a watercolor paint in the sky and mountains. But the white crayon created a wax resist. It was like magic the snowflakes started appearing all over they page!

Here are the finished pieces!
