Although they have an opportunity to express their opinions based on their experiences, this is an entry to a class debate in which they will have to research a topic, gather the facts, expert opinions and anecdotal information to debate each other. Students will also review a few movies about debating. Homework this week will be based on debate topics. No tests/quizzes.

Oil pastel Landscape
Students will continue creating their Oil Pastel Landscape.Oil Pastel is a painting and drawing medium with characteristics similar to pastels and wax crayons. Unlike “soft” or “Japanese” pastel sticks, which are made with a gum or methyl cellulose binder, oil pastels consist of pigment mixed with a non-drying oil and wax binder. The surface of an oil pastel painting is therefore less powdery, but more difficult to protect with a fixative. Oil pastels provide a harder edge than “soft” or “French” pastels but are more difficult to blend
With oil pastels, any paper surface can be used, however for best results a heavier paper such as pastel paper is recommended. Canson Paper is a good starting paper with oil pastels; however you want to consider a heavier paper.
Thinner paper like sketch paper can be quickly stained through with oil pastels, because there is actual oil in the medium. You can place a piece of cardboard underneath, or use a student’s drawing board.
Blending with oil pastels is useful to see what effects can be created with them. There are various blending techniques you can use, try blending with your fingers (if you don’t mind the mess!), or you might try blending with “tortillion”sticks.
The colors can get layered on very fast and in just a matter of minutes you can at least get an idea of where your drawing is headed. If you feel it isn’t starting out well, oil pastels can’t really be erased, but they can be scraped off and you just put another layer down in that area. In addition to keeping yourself clean, it’s a good idea to keep the oil pastels clean, while working with them.This is especially important when layering and blending with other colors. What happens is, the oil pastel sticks will pick up other colors onto the stick you’re using, and that can be a real problem if you use that stick later but still have a smear of another color adhered to the end of the stick.
When you get to the point where you have a finished oil pastels piece that you want to hang and frame, or sell to others, you might consider a fixative on top.
