While in Fort Worth...my wife and I were at Starbucks, I noticed their interesting display of buildings on the wall. They were done on what seemed to be collaged backgrounds. I like the simple lines and grouping. I was thinking that could make a fun spring/unspring project. We all go toward flowers and such when spring time rolls around. I like flowers...but sometimes you just want to change it up!!!! (my goal is no Georgia O lessons this spring!) I thought it would be fun to have student try different watercolor techniques for the background. This would represent the rainy nature of spring. Then do a simple line drawing...followed by outlining with black tempera. The images are my test/samples.
I think the kids work would be more fun than mine!! ha ha
