How To Create This Bat Painting
Download and print out the Bat template.
Carefully cut out all the bats from the template and set aside.
On a white piece of construction paper or cardstock, draw a circle (moon) with yellow pastels and then trace that circle with orange.
Use your fingertips to smudge the colors together.
Use blues and greens to create color around the moon.
Put a thick layer of oil pastel on and then use your fingertips to blend, blend, and blend some more.
Once finished, draw a border around the entire piece of paper with black oil pastel. Blend the black pastel towards the middle of the paper.
Once satisfied with the result, glue the bats all over the moon.
