Product Description
The joy in this project is exploring with watercolor paints. The children love having the opportunity to experiment with different painting techniques and to end up with a realistic looking chicken.

We draw the chicken together in pencil with a simple step-by-step drawing. Then they explore different painting techniques. The kids are free to play with mixing colors on the paper, experiment with painting wet-on-wet and adding salt. So fun! The next class they add details in oil pastels. Blue Chicken by Deborah Freedman is the perfect book for this project, and it’s easy to tie in fun facts about chickens.

The 15-page project includes:
-Project Overview + Learning Objectives
-Fun Facts About Chickens + Word Wall (with Definitions)
-Recommended Books + Supplies
-Photo Tutorial for Drawing
-Photo Tutorial for Painting
-Helpful Tips + Possible Extensions
-Student Gallery, Grades 1-2
-How To Draw a Chicken Step-by-Step
-Chicken Line Drawings, Horizontal and Vertical

Supplies needed: pencils, 12 x 18" or 9 x 12” watercolor paper, liquid watercolors, salt, oil pastels, large brushes, placemats.
