Oil Pastel Lizards with Shadows

2nd Grade Oil Pastel Lizards with Shadows

I did the first grade snail lesson and they came out so cute. I wanted do a similar lesson for second grade.

Materials: half sheet of black card stock, pencil, eraser, Cray-Pas oil pastels

We start with the horizon line across the middle and then a rectangle for the lizard body. Then we get the rectangle for the shadow and work on getting it the same size and shape. Then add the head, tail and feet for each.

We choose cool colors for the background and color in the ground around the lizard, then the sky around the lizard.
Then we choose warm colors for the lizard, add in the little tongue. The lizard shadow does not get colored in, it stays the black of the paper.
We use white and black for the eyes and black for the tongue on the shadow.
