ok-I won't have time today, or maybe not for a few days, but I will type it into the body of an email asap. I was afraid that some would not be able to open a Works file. Linda

> Hi Everyone-attached is an "exploration" lesson I do with watercolor techniques. I have the kids choose an idea or theme, then execute it the twelve ways given. It becomes a bit quilt-like and gives the kids an opportunity to see how various techniques can affect the same subject. Later I assign them a landscape using at least 5 of the techniques. We also do some mixed media work with colored pencils and some tissue paper, watercolor collage.
