I have done this art lesson for the past couple of years and it is always a big hit! Mainly because everyone loves penguins!
This year the background will be a little different. Instead of using watercolors to paint the background, we'll use bleeding tissue paper. When you put the tissue paper on paper and then get it wet, the color starts to "bleed" onto the paper, creating a great painted effect.
We use separate paper to draw the penguin on, using black and white oil pastels. We cut out the penguin and glue it onto the background paper.
I'm in my 6th year teaching art in Becker, MN. Time has really flown by! Wowza!
