Then, they applied these techniques in their larger than life drawings of owls.

CHALK PASTEL DRAWINGS OF AUTUMN LEAVES
4th grade artists first drew Autumn leaves from observation. They used a viewfinder to crop their drawing. They then scaled up their drawings. Finally, they observed the colors found in the leaves and used chalk pastels to add these vibrant colors to their drawings.
