The 3rd graders learned the watercolor technique wet-on-wet. They got the bottom half of their paper wet a little at a time and got their watercolors wet. Using a small brush they touched the wet paint on the wet paper and the color "exploded" around the paper. They used cool colors to resemble water.
Two trees with bare branches were drawn on the top half, painted and folded in half to create a print or "reflection" on the bottom half of the paper.
The 1st graders used orange, yellow and white paint to paint an entire piece of paper. Once dry they cut out a pumpkin and glued it to black paper. Using white oil pastel we drew curved lines to make our pumpkin look round. We cut out a stem and made vines for the top of the pumpkin. We mixed yellow and blue oil pastel to make our leaves. Finally we drew stars, vines and a moon!
