For this project, students chose an animal that they felt represented their 'spirit animal'. Students learned how to use the oil pastels in different ways and how to make their animals with arbitrary colors. Arbitrary colors are colors that are 'non-realistic'. So, if you wanted to make your cat blue, make the cat blue! :) I love how these animals have so much expression through the use of color. They turned out great! Here are some that were chosen to hang in the hallway.
