All over the world of Art Teacher blogs I see classes drawing nutcrackers.  I thought drawing and coloring a nutcracker picture would be a very nice last class before Christmas break.  This week we only did half-hour classes to accomodate a gift exchange, pizza instead of our usual sack lunches, and LOTS of playtime.  The day was festive!

I demonstrated nutcracker drawing techniques, using this lesson from Art Projects for Kids.(Kathy has 3 other nutcracker posts showing  nutcrackers colored with oil pastels, watercolors, crayons - all pretty!) We outlined with black Sharpie or black Slick Stix, then colored them with Slick Stix.  Nice results!

Here are some other Nutcracker art lesson links:
