An Afternoon of Origami
Last Project for our FALL ART CLUB

Create your own scratch art!

Our club created their own gobbling turkey just in time for thanksgiving with oil pastels. After that, the students covered their gorgeous pictures completely with black oil pastels. And they thought "Oh no! What have we done?"

Not to worry, during the next club session we used wooden tools to scratch off that black layer to reveal our turkeys and it created an awesome effect. Students made their scratch lines go in different directions for each part of their work (sky, grass, turkey).

Try this at home if you have your own oil pastels. 
FYI--Oil pastels are an inexpensive art supply that make great art!

Molin's Fall Art Club 
Display in the Main Office

Our club runs in five week sessions and meets once a week after school. Students are chosen through lottery in an effort to keep the club small and yet allow for as many students that are interested to participate throughout the school year. 

Students used glue as a watercolor resist and experimented with mixing analogous colors to create vibrant pumpkins to celebrate the best of what New England offers...beautiful autumn harvests!
