I have been immersed in Pysanky classes for about 2 weeks now. Usually not all students will finish at the same time. You have your ones who race to the finish, those who try to take as much time as they can, and then everyone in between.
As the kids finish their Pysanky egg they then can complete this pastel resist paper egg.
This is Grade 1.
- white paper, use heavy sketch or wc
- pencil and eraser
- oil pastels
- disk tempera paint
Pysanky design in pencil. You want fairly large shapes.
Keep some areas of the egg uncolored.
You can also outline the egg shape.
Pysanky in process.
This is Grade 2.
And even though I'm teaching Pysanky all day long I come home and work on my own eggs with my kids as well.
I'll have some completed Pysanky pictures for you Friday. In the meantime why not do a large pastel resist paper egg!
See you soon.
i love love love love your blogReplyDelete
Love this! We adopted our daughter from Ukraine 2 years ago and this year I wanted to try to make some pysankys. I realize my 2 youngest won't be able to do the egg, but your pastel resist idea is perfect!ReplyDelete
I just discovered your blog. I loved it!ReplyDelete
These days off I do with my little activity. Just great.
A greeting from Barcelona
Great idea!I'm a Ukie and I've been trying to do a good egg for about 30 years. This is a much more kid-friendly project. Thank you!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous! I am posting this tomorrow....not as beautiful as yours though!ReplyDelete
I love sharing pysanky with adults and children! And this resit idea is fabulous!ReplyDelete
What is the material you are using for the egg holder? I love that idea! That's one of the biggest problems, rolling eggs!
The material is just that anti slip shelf liner and the egg holders are curtain rings that I found.
I did the paper eggs with grade 3's this week, the kids loved them! please go check them out! http://artisandesarts.blogspot.comReplyDelete
Would I be able to use crayons and a watered-down liquid tempera or watercolors if that is all I have? Love it! Thanks!ReplyDelete
Hey anonymous, Wax crayons will give you the resist and I would go with the watercolours. You can give the watered down liquid tempera a try but sometimes it's still too opaque to get the resist to show thru. Good luckDelete
Love you! I am Ukrainian and have been teaching this as art teacher as STEAM and enrichment for last 20 years k-12, then alsoon weekends at the library for the 4-99!ReplyDelete
