Penguins

It’s a snowy, winter wonderland outside and today we drew a penguin family! The students drew the penguins with white pastel pencil on black paper. Then they used their white pastel pencils to shade in the lights and left the paper for the darks. Awesome! Scroll through the slideshow to see a penguin drawing.
