Pastel Rabbits

Oh cuteness!  After a simple directed drawing at the board with second graders, and outlining with a black sharpie,  I showed them how to use a gray crayon to shade around the edges of the white bunny.  All I had to do is show them someone's white shirt and they were able to see that even white has shadows.

Then I demonstrated the "wet on wet" technique with my educational watercolors.  By applying the water to the paper first, then dropping small amounts of watercolors into the water, we were able to create the light pastel colors so popular around Easter time.  I am in love with all the wonderful expressions on these bunnies!
