Phases of the Moon Oil Painting

Bring a little art project into learning about phases of the moon. Here is an oil painting project using crayons, oil paint crayons and water. Students will create a beautiful galactic backdrop for drawing the phases of the moon that will end up looking more like a painting as opposed to a drawing.

A fun way to make your painting POP - Teach Junkie

Painting the Phases of the Moon

Take white cardstock and add stars in white crayon to create a beautiful backdrop for the moon phases. Then students color the entire page black (coloring over the stars) with a black oil paint crayon. Paint the entire paper with water, revealing the stars and transforming it from a drawing to a painting. Add moons after the painting has dried.
