Wipe and Resist Leaf Art

I was going to have my class do a simple art with watercolor and crayon.  But I was feeling lazy.  I already had tempera paints out from earlier and didn't feel like cleaning those brushes and getting out new ones....blah, blah, blah.

Then and idea hit me!  What if we used these paints over the crayon and then wiped off the paints?  By golly, it worked!  And it made some gorgeous art, too.

When we got down to doing the art project I actually used an oil pastel instead of crayon because it works much faster (remember I was feeling lazy).

After each child was finished painting, we took a paper towel and swiped the paint off.  It left a beautiful rainbow of colors behind!

We cut around the leaves and hung them around the room.  Bright and cheery fall!

You can do any type of picture and it works great!  I did a quick pumpkin, as well.
