I also have a new grade 8 class who has just begun their oil pastel blending. This unit has stayed exactly the same because the students have loved every task. They seem to like competing with the previous classes as they are always asking “which group is better?”
This task allows the students to explore colour and the techniques of successfully blending oil pastels before they produce their major Georgia O’Keeffe piece. The designs seem to become more and more creative which I enjoy. I guess they have had many samples to be inspired by from the previous students. Well done grade 8.
