After the half way point I start challenging my kindergarten students to some more advanced skills. Some will get it...some will not(yet)...but they do a great job & love the process!
This is a two day project. The first day we look at & discuss landscapes. We brake it down to the three parts & talk about the characteristics of each one. We also look at photographs of houses, and talk about the type of house they want to live in when they grow up. After they finish drawing they trace their work with crayon. I do this because it helps keep the watercolor from going everywhere when they paint the following class time! Week two is a demo on painting with watercolor...and then I let them get to work!
Here are the results!
