Draw, Paint, and Salt
- Have older students help younger students.
- Keep the designs inside the wings large and simple to accommodate the fat lines of the oil pastels.
- To save on paint, have students share palettes. Very little watercolor paint is needed. We used Blick Liquid Watercolors.
- Make sure to have a mini-lesson on too little water versus too much.
