Art Classes: Level III

Level III-Art Lesson 1: The Hawaiian Frog

Learn to draw a frog based on a Hawaiian water fountain

The lesson is suitable for students in grade 5 through adult.


Art Lesson Description:

On the island of Oahu, Hawaii, is an enormous cemetery with a variety of religious centers to serve the various groups living on the island.  We found this frog spurting water into a quiet pond outside a Buddhist temple on the cemetery.

If this is the first time you have had a chance to work with oil pastels, you will be happy to discover how easy they are to work with.  The lesson is also an introduction to using light and dark colors to create shape.

Since the lesson includes lots of pictures of real frogs, there is plenty of input for the creative use of color.

This lesson includes both POWERPOINT and VIDEO versions of the lesson plus 2 downloadable printouts: a warmup and a drawing of the frog.
