Inspired by Starbucks

While in Fort 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
