Last year with my K-1 I did a watercolor special effect/space painting...
Drew with crayon simple elements (fence row and trees) to indicate
foreground, midground and background - overlapping, size change etc....
used white and light blue crayons to 'draw' snow... watercolor wash
over ground -
in sky... we eye-droppered(!) liquid watercolor on wet paper, blue,
turquoise and purple... and sprinkled with salt...
Right now trying to think of a reverse painting thing using overhead roll
stuff (aka acetate)... to build up snow flakes to overlay on a scene -
Gotta press - or a slab roller? Create snowflake armatures - wire,
cardboard - we cut them out of lino one year - lay nice damp heavy paper
down over the plate and run it through to emboss the snowflake - simple...
You know a class could carve snowflake designs or winter scenes out of clay
(like the clay cookie/candy molds) - fire, and cast with paper pulp....
that's a longer process - best to save for a rainy/snowy day...
