Our Mode of Modigliani

By Zee Zee- Age 10

Last week in art class we studied Amadeo Modigliani, these are just a couple of the beautiful pieces that the students came up with as well as links to the projects that inspired them and more information about the artist.


The above projects were completed with oil pastel and then baby oil was rubbed over the pictures with Q-tips to spread out and blend the paint.

I've never tried using baby oil over oil pastels... great idea! I can't wait to try it!!! Have you found a fixative that works well on oil pastels - one that's safe to use in the classroom??

For chalk pastels, I actually use a cheap aerosol hairspray as a fixative. I haven't tried that for the oil pastel though.
