This is my favorite way for students to make a scratch art picture, a black marker drawing first, and then layers of oil pastel on top. The result is a very artsy image this is 100% their own creativity.
1. Students folded a letter size paper in half (heavy stock is best) and then wrote D-A-D in either block letters or very fat stick letters with a permanent black marker.
2. My favorite Portfolio® oil pastels really do work best in the layering of color. I recommended that they choose a combination of light colors to cover the entire paper.
3. A dark color (dark blue, dark purple, or black, etc.) was used to cover the entire page again. Lots of pastel needs to be used for the best results.
4. Students used a wooden stick to scratch off their designs. This could be just lines, or patterns and writing too. Be warned, this is messy, but lots of fun! I used it for kinder through 4th graders today and all walked away with a card they were really proud of.
