Grade 2 students have been working on resist techniques. What is resist? We experimented with different substances to see what happens when you mix them together; oil and water. wax and watercolour, crayons and paint. Here is what we found out:

“The wax is like a wall, it won’t let the colours in” Callum 2 Rea

“It is like the wax crayon is marking it’s territory” Holly 2 ONeel

“The oil is like a barrier against the water” Akshat 2 ONeel

“They don’t like each other so they push each other away!” Bella 2 Duprat

Their first piece of resist art was using Crayons and watercolours. The colours really stand out in the night sky!
