Melville Intermediate - Blending with Pastels

Yesterday Room 8 started our Technology Options. One of the opportunities available to students at Melville Intermediate School is to have the students have extra lessons in a specialised area. One of the Technology Options that our students are currently in is Art. Kelly and Samm from the option created and filmed this video of thier Art lesson - they spoke to Bradley from Room 8 and he demonstrated how to blend with pastels. Filmed at Melville Intermediate on Tuesday February 16th 2010.


  1. Well done Kelly, Sam and Bradley. I thought your video was inspiring. I especially loved how you demonstrated blending, other student will be able to learn from your video.

  2. Now, i have to say that I did learn something! Thank you guys!
    I am sure Mr. Webb is happy about this!

  3. Wow! What a fantastically thought out video guys! You had all obviously prepared for you rown part in the video yet the discussion appeared relaxed and was also very informative. My Year5/6 kids would learn lots from you.

    Camera work - ka pai! great use of panning, zooming and close ups!


  4. Great job with your video Kelly, Samm and Bradley. The students at my school would love to have an Art Room like yours!

    I was wondering if you were using oil or chalk pastels for your blending. Two of our Australian Picture Book illustrators, Ann James and Dee Huxley do inspiring chalk pastel illustrations.

  6. Hey guys! I am a student in Dr. Strange's EDM 310 class at USA. Im glad to see you using technology in the class room to teach others about art. I am an education major and plan to teach english, but i will be getting a bachelor's in studio arts. So i appreciate the arts and love to see students, such as yourselves, taking the role of a teacher and posting a video to inform others on how to blend colors. Great job and keep up the good work!

  7. Hey guys! I am a student at South Alabama, majoring in education. I plan to teach english, but also get a bachelor's in studio art. With that said, I appreciates the arts and it is amazing to see students, such as yourselves, taking on the role of a teacher and making a video to inform people about how to blend colors. Great job and keep up the good work!
