Penguins and polar bears

Made by Jorine, grade 6

You need:

  1. white drawing sheet A4 size
  2. plastic wrap
  3. watercolour paint
  4. brush
  5. jar with water
  6. black waterproof marker
  7. white tempera paint
  8. orange marker
  9. glue
  10. coloured cardboard
  11. white pencil

Paint a part of the sheet with blue water paint. Use lots of water. While the paint is still wet, push plastic wrap on it to create floes and then leave the sheet to dry. Remove the wrap.

Use a waterproof black marker to draw several penguins. Colour the black parts and draw wings. Use white tempera to paint the bellies. Leave the work to dry and draw eyes and beaks.

Draw a polar bear on the ice. Trace the pencil lines with a fine black waterproof marker. Paint the bear with white tempera paint, including the black lines to make them a bit hazy.
Paint the background with a mixture of white tempera and a little blue. In the example the mix is made of white tempera and the blue rinse water of the water paint.

Paste the work on a coloured background and draw ice crystals along the edges with a white pencil.
