Romero Britto 5th grade
If you have never seen Romero Britto's work, you should really check it out, it is great! I have had a wonderful student teacher recently who introduced me to his work. She had 5th grade do a project with his work. Students could choose any subject matter that they wished, as long as it was simple. Students drew their picture, then used rulers to draw the lines. Be sure to tell students to not get too many lines, or else it looks like a spider web. Students then chose either warm and cool colors for the subject and the background, though I think it would be fine to let them loose with whatever color scheme that they wish. Students used oil pastels to color, then black tempera paint to outline. I love how bright and bold these pictures are!
