The students have been learning all about how certain materials ‘resist’ each other and using this understanding to create artwork. They have experimented with oil pastels and black ink. They have colourful designs using oil pastels or glue which has resisted watercolour ink.
This is what some of the students have said about these materials:
“The oil pastel is like a wall”.
“The oil pastel stops the watercolour, it is like a stop sign”.
“The oil pastel and glue push away the watercolour”.
” The glue dries and the watercolour stays away”.
