Learning About Wax Resist in Art!

Learning About Wax Resist in Art!

3rd grade students learned about wax resist in art class this week.

In art class this week students worked on creating their own fall watercolor leaves using a wax resist technique.

They cut out leaves and traced them into various designs on paper.

Then they used crayons to trace the veins and branch of the leaves. 

The concept of the wax resist art technique involves laying down wax (crayons) on paper and painting over the wax. The wax resists the watercolor, leaving the white paper exposed.

Students enjoyed creating their own unique designs with the leaves, coloring them and painting them.

Once the leaves dry they will work on painting in their background and then apply salt to it to create texture to their artwork.
