Day of the Dead Art Project

Second grade used the same technique as the First Grade Skull project, but drew a full skeleton instead of a simple skull. Simple instructions this time...I think it's fairly easy to follow!
1. Use a white oil pastel to draw a skeleton with clothes...chose a man or woman.
2. Use white tempera paint to paint over the "bones".

3. Use tempera paint (mixed with a bit of white) to paint the clothes.
Second Grade Results!

Would love to know how many minutes/class periods your projects take. :) Thanks!

just one...about 40 minutes. Go longer if you like. Perhaps add a background, etc.

I absolutely love these. I might have to try it with my students.
