My grade 9 students investigated pastel techniques and created a final composition based on their field studies trip in Japan, where they were required to consider how to implement colour, various pastel techniques and methods into a well balanced and attractive landscape composition. Students were given the choice of soft or oil pastel. You can view the work via Flickr here. You can also view the week by week breakdown of what was done in class here if interested. One thing that I did do differently this year was to assign students into groups to conduct their own research on pastel techniques. Here is also an example of a student reflection.
