Elementary Art Project- Snowman with chalk pastels

This is an art project I did this winter with the 4th and 5th graders.  I wanted to have them do snowmen but drawing them at a different angle.  I found a wonderful art project on Pinterest here and used it as my inspiration.

The kids used Sharpie to draw the snowman and then used chalk pastels.  I asked them to work on SHADING the snowman, using two colors next to each other on the color wheel and blend around the edges.  Then I said to use a contrasting color for the background so the snowman would POP!

The kids only drew two out of the three snowballs that make up a snowman.  And I encouraged them to have the snowman go off the page.

I just love the creativity they came up with and how different they all were!  I think they really enjoyed this one.  My goal in teaching art to elementary kids is to have them think of things differently, to expand their thinking.  I want them to be creative and think outside the box.

I think this one is so funny, kind of like a Minecraft snowman!
