4th & 5th grade Blended Candy Canes

4th & 5th grade Blended Candy Canes As 5th graders are finishing their one point perspective pictures, they can start on a fun project that involves blending, and using one of my favorite mediums, oil pastels.

Here's a link to the video, if that doesn't work. How to shade your candy cane Color side to side to make that white line wider. Add your darker colors on either side of your lighter colors. If you get out of the lines, it's ok! Make sure you're coloring side to side, and not up and down! Go back with your lighter colors, and white, and blend to make a more gradual change in value.
