The Easter Egg & Art Project

Friday, we read The Easter Egg by Jan Brett...love the beautiful illustrations!!

The Easter Egg
Afterward, students made their own eggs using oil pastels and watercolor paints.  I quickly cut their egg templates out b/c I knew it would take them awhile to sketch, trace, and paint.  They turned out beautifully! I forgot to take a picture of the final products but I will try to remember Monday.
