The second graders are going to be creating an Olympic Event Scene. So, we began by creating a snowy background. What a mess... but such are the things that endear a second grader to their art teacher. A chalky background, over which we stamped white tempera/acrylic medium mix. And, set it aside to dry. We will continue this by cutting silhouettes out of tissue and attaching them to the winter scenes... but that's another day.
