Kids did a guided drawing of a highland cow. They then outlined their drawings in black oil pastel before moving on to the beautiful (and messy!) chalk pastels to colour in their cows. They were given free rein with colour / style.
The following week, they painted the backgrounds for their cows. To emphasise the Scottish-ness of our cows, they were all given a traditional girl or boys name. There’s Hamish, Eilidh, Morag, amongst others. LOVE the results and love the fact that you can tell if they’re boys or girls!
Ages range from 5 to 7 years old.
