Back to School Backpacks

Students have been drawing contour drawings for several days before they were allowed to start drawing their own backpack or book bag. After completing a side, front and back view of their backpack, they were allowed to start their final drawing. They had to draw a big, contour drawing of their backpack, filling the 12x18" paper. Once completed, they outlined their drawing with a black Sharpie marker. Next they "glued" down bleeding tissue paper to their drawing using a brush and water. They left it to dry overnight and the next day removed the tissue paper, revealing the color on their backpack.
