This monster drawing makes teaching adjectives a ton of fun!
Kids will experiment with oil pastels and create textures to match adjectives like shaggy and bumpy.
See my 3 favorite texture ideas in this blog post with step-by-step photos for each one.
I made the media experiments and monsters in this blog post with various combinations of watercolors, oil pastels and mineral oil. This is my first time trying out Maped oil pastels
. I like that they are thick and go on very sooth. I can also appreciate that they are triangular and less likely to roll off the table. You can see the all of Maped supplies here
Monster Drawing Steps
This monster uses oil pastels and watercolors to make a kind, colorful, bumpy monster.
Monster with a Shaggy Texture
This monster drawing uses oil pastels that were textured with a q-tip dipped in mineral oil. As a result, the oil pastel has a texture that looks like brushstrokes. For this reason, the word I used to describe this texture is shaggy.
Monster Drawing with a Furry Texture
I’ve used green, blue, and yellow oil pastels for the friendly, green, furry monster. I used a paper towel to blend the colors together to create a light green. On top of the light green, I added red lines to make a furry looking texture.
