Hedgehogs and Hands
I love using little ones hands to create projects! We read the book Hedgie's Surprise by Jan Brett
This project was created by 3rd students who first used 12 x18 white drawing paper and made short scratch marks with oil pastels
(Colors of the oil pastels were gray, black, white, orange, brown and various tans and neutrals.)
Then students used vivid liquid watercolors to paint over the oil pastels. This resist really brought out the needle-look of the hedgehog fur.
