Kids just love Oil Pastels. We start the class by looking at some works of Rita Naras-Kreitz. Her earlier work was entirely in colored pencil. Now she is using a technique in which 90% of the work is completed in oil pastel and detail is then sharpened and enhanced by colored pencil. Rita's style aims for a classical, realistic representation of various scenes. You can find some of her work here. http://www.mcs.ca/rnk_studio/g10_still_life/g10_still_life.html
Oil pastels like crayons are used in their dry forms and produce a crayon like effect.
