Polar bear


Step 1
Print your polar bear template as a guide. The template includes grey lines separating each shape.


Step 2
Choose cool colors (blues, greens, purples) to color in the shapes of your polar bear.


Step 3
You want a good variety of colors and try not to have the same colors touching eachother.


Step 4
Choose warm colors (reds, oranges, and yellows) and start filling in the shapes of the background.


Step 5
Color in every shape leaving no white space. Make sure you pressed hard enough with your oil pastels to ge a thick layer of color on your paper.


Step 6
You can stop here and frame on black construction paper if you like

Step 7
Or you might want to add in some patterns. Oil pastel can be scratched away to reveal a lighter hue of the same color. This is a great way to add texture and patterns to your polar bear.


Step 8
You can even add in things you might see in an Arctic landscape; iceburgs, winter trees, a full moon, inukshuk, etc….
