This lesson was challenging and rewarding for the kids as they learned about drawing a symmetrically correct lantern in the correct proportions. It’s fun to learn about contour line drawing from a reference drawing and going slow sketching lightly to create an excellent composition without too much negative space. Oil pastel resist is created for the night sky with a black watercolor wash and the lantern is attached to the night sky as a collage. Proportion, contrast and balance are taught as principles of design. The 4th up kids will love making these but so will adults. This lesson is beautiful. We will learn about the first lantern and how we shine for Jesus as His lights in the world!
