Art Project #29-- Oil Pastel Bubbles

We made some fun and easy bubbles last week as part of our 100 Days of Art.

The boys were a bit skeptical at first but they really enjoyed this project and we all were so happy with the results!

We took a few random objects out of our cabinet to trace (we ended up settling on nail polish, tuna fish, tomato paste, and a can of soup).  We also drew a few areas of dotted white to look like popped bubbles.

The boys traced a variety of circles onto their papers; overlapping some while using oil pastels.

Once we had all of our circle we went through and added some highlights to the bubbles in two or three areas.  Some highlights were small while others were large.  We used a variety of colors in our bubbles and kept our highlights near the outside of our circles.

Before we knew it we had a whole page of bubbles!
