Snowmen at Night Chalk Pastel Drawings

  1. read the book “Snowmen at Night” which is beautifully illustrated by Mark Buehner. READ Snowmen at night: http://www.wegivebooks.org/books/snowmen-at-night/reader
  2. First I demonstrated how to draw and shade snowmen being lit by moonlight. Students needed to be able to create a sense of a 3-D form through shading on one side.
  3. They used chalk pastels on blue or purple construction paper.
  4. The snowman had to be doing some sort of activity.
  5. This is a good lesson for the principle of movement in Art.
  6. As well, we discussed how light (moonlight) can affect the way white snow looks. I encouraged color blending and mixing.
  7. Students also needed to include the moon on one side of their paper and make sure they shaded the correct side of the snowman
