I volunteer once of twice a month for the STARS program at the Olympia Center.  This time I prepared some pumpkin patterns for the participants to trace.

I had oil pastels for them to use. Nice bright color.

Once each person was finished coloring their pumpkins, I gave the paper a wash of watered down black ink.

Resists are fun and the oil pastels leave a nice bright color and are easier to use because they are soft.

Keep arting…
