Charcoal Owl Drawings



Art Start September 2018

Kids love owls! The big eyes, the fluffy feathers, the funny looks. And fall seems like the perfect time to draw them. In September, my Art Start students drew owls from photo reference using pencil. They outlined these drawings with permanent black marker, then shaded with charcoal and added highlights with white chalk pastel. Scroll down to see the many different textures, details and moods created by blending and combining materials. Beautiful!
