Bought a photo book with all kinds of great pictures of Roosters and Hens. The children choose their favorite. They drew it on Black Foam Core and used chalk pastels. Ages 4 to High School age did this project.
These drawings were done by children aged 10. They used white chalk and charcoal on black paper and used a real feather for observation enlarging the drawings to fill the paper. They were using the smudging qualities of the chalk to recreate the texture of the feathers.
