> I do a crayon resist piece with my art 1 classes that involves stylization

> crayon to resist it and only go into the areas that don't have crayon.
> The secret for me is to design a composition, then use a bold marker to
> make an outline. Transfer the design onto drawing paper by tracing on
> both sides of the marker line to create a space between the shapes of the
> design. Use crayon very heavily with in those shapes and then with
> lightly watered down black tempera paint between the lines to fill in the
> spaces and illuminate the crayon.
> Do you have a web site with samples of your student's art work? What kind of paper do you use?
