Bird in a Birdcage

I have had a bit of a bird obsession over the last year or so, and this is the latest in a series of bird inspired projects!

1. We used some pictures of different birds to help us do a pencil drawing.

2. We then outlined and shaded our bird using a black wax crayon.

3. We used an overhead projector to trace our birdcage over our bird.

4. We went over the pencil lines of our birdcage with our black wax crayon (although this photo doesn't show it!)

5, Finally we painted an ink background over our entire background except for the bird. I will be uploading some student examples in the next few days!


  1. Beautiful :) The contrast between the B&W and bright color is great!

    1. Thanks Elizabeth....I was really happy with how they turned out :-)
