This is a terrific drawing lesson that gets the creative juices flowing. It is great as a 15 minute filler.

What You Need:
Paper 18″ x 24″
Oil pastels or crayons
What You Do:
Take a pencil and begin by drawing a window frame on your paper, making sure it fills the entire space.
Using your imagination, draw something you might see when you look through outside, through the window. This could be anything from a tree to a scary monster to a drag car to your best friend. Anything goes.
Using the crayons or oil pastels, trace over your pencil lines making sure to press hard.
With a lot of water and a little bit of paint, cover your picture with a “wash” of color.
