"After drawing on paper, fill some small jars with baby oil, pop in a ear swab or qtip and then using the qtip, place the baby oil over the oil pastel drawing...it turns the oil pastel to paint. It's a wonderful experience."

Oil pastels can be messy, but I still like my students to experience the medium.  We practice drawing insects  for a few days, and exploring the amazing colors on many of natures creatures.  They chose one and there is no restrictions on how they add design and color. Tropical fish work well for this assignment as well.
