Tape a piece of cardstock down so it stays positioned.
Sketch a basic landscape with pencil. The image in the photo shown started with a copy of a Seurat painting in black and white.
Dip a q-tip in water and dip it into the paint.
Pressing down lightly will make a small dot, more pressure will create a larger one.
Have the students try to full up as much of the paper as possible with color.
Using a piece of sandpaper have the children color something on it. Something colorful like a fall scene or a pattern will work. Even a copy of a Seurat will work. Don’t let the children write anything on the sandpaper because it will appear backwards when the sandpaper drawing is transferred to paper! Stress that they color the sandpaper with dark vibrant colors.
The more color on the paper and the darker the color is applied the better the color will appear when it is transferred to paper. After the children are done with their sandpaper
drawing you take the sandpaper and place it drawing side down onto white or very lightly colored construction paper. (Some people like to staple the sandpaper onto the construction paper first.) If you staple the sandpaper onto the construction paper fold the paper so the sandpaper side is down on the plain side. Then take a HOT iron and iron on the back of
the sandpaper to melt the crayon. This step melts crayon onto the construction paper. You do not want the iron to touch the crayon. Let the sandpaper cool slightly before
lifting apart. The end result should be that the mirrored image should look like a pointillism painting. Save both halves and you can mount them together.
