Love, Loved this little project from last year, here was my post from then:
I need to give credit to Kathy and her blog Art Projects for kids-Thank You!:
She has AWESOME step X step drawings and this clown is one I got from her great site.
The first graders have to really focus on filling up space and coloring in dark with the oil pastels. I get some scary clowns every now and then, but for the most part they look pretty innocent! I think it scares some of the teachers more than the kids!
