"Owls in the Moonlight" by fourth grade

I love these owl paintings. The students used paintbrushes, cardboard pieces, their thumbs, and the backs of their paintbrushes to create these moonlit paintings. The owl details were added on with sharpie markers. Last year's class did them on light blue paper with a big yellow moon, but I thought it looked too much like day. So, this year we switched to purple paper and added a moon with a cool blue glow around them. I think they represent nighttime better now. I got the idea from http://kidsartists.blogspot.com/2010/12/owls-in-night.html. It's a great art blog!

Some finished pieces...
