Altering the Surface with Gesso

2nd grade had a lot of fun exploring texture while manipulating gesso for this project.  To create designs in the body of the animal, we moved the gesso around with paint scrapers or plastic utensils   The second day, we used watercolor crayons to paint in.  The transparency of the watercolors allows the texture of the gesso to show through beautifully.

The students could choose from an array of 3 dimensional animal models or could draw from memory.
