This art project is part of the Art at Home series of Facebook Live video replays.
I created this lesson when I was looking for a fast project my first graders could complete in one class session. For parents, that means a pretty fun draw-a-long and quick drying time!
I love these type of easy drawings that most kids can accomplish with just a few tries. Then, they can make their frog their own by using paints (I prefer watercolors or liquid tempera paint) or kids can color with oil pastels or even crayons. So many options!
About Drawing Paper:
I love using Tru-Ray Drawing paper by Pacon. It’s a smooth white paper that is perfect for color pencils, markers, crayons and even paint. When you find regular drawing paper or all-purpose paper in the art and craft stores, just look for a smooth white paper made for kids.
Start the drawing by using a black crayon or oil pastel to draw the frog. Add patterns with crayons. In the video, I’ll show you how to add the crown, lily pads and reeds.
When you’re ready to paint, apply liquid watercolors to the rest of the frog and background.
