This project is using a method of crayon resist that I use often with my 
Elementary Art students. 
Here, the plateaus, plants, rainbow and stars are done with non-washable crayon.
The sky is painted with water tempera cakes.


We are using the SouthWest paintings from 
Candy Barr as inspiration.

What is CRAYON RESIST?
What is a PLATEAU?

HOT AIR BALLOON 
over the WARM PLATEAU

I have done a complete unit with multiple grades on the subject of 
Hot Air Balloons. 
See here...

Color all OBJECTS (plateaus, stars, balloons, rainbows, or details)
Hard with CRAYONS
Leave the SKY blank and white for the later absorbance of Water Paint. 
Where there is CRAYON, the paper will RESIST the PAINT. 

2nd graders working towards painting...



 Sky Painted, stars appear!

Add clouds.
