Fireflies in a Field Light up the Night

I absolutely love this lesson! This lesson has several reference drawings to draw from so the kids can make their firefly however they want to in their composition with lots of visual information to choose from.  Composition understanding is taught as the kids fill up their picture plane without showing too much negative space. The kids will learn how to use contrast as a principle of design and see how the lightning bug stands out because of contrast as they fly and shine in the painted night sky. We use oil pastels and tempera paints for this lesson the lesson says 4th - 8th but it is fun and rewarding through adults to make.
