After they'd finished the Obama portraits, I gave them a copy of the American flag, and told them they could draw and paint their own flag or an intrepretation of the American flag.
I cut a portrait of Obama into quarters and gave each child one, and a piece of canvas. I explained how to draw the portrait proportionally. (This is one of the kid's drawings.)

I brought a number of objects for the kids to draw. They could use charcoal, oil pastels or watercolor pencils. Everyone really liked charcoal.
Once they drew a bunch of objects, they cut them out and assembled them into a still life. Some kids ended up writing stories about what they'd drawn.
