Re: 4th grade watercolor landscapes


Date: Mon Mar 12 2001 - 15:25:14 PST

I also have my fourth graders do a watercolor lesson, only I base it on
Audubons birds. Only the backgroud it painted. The bird is collage/colored
pencil. They turned out beautiful last year. I found it was hard for them to
add in the details with watercolor. Or maybe I was too picky. I like the
collage better. Maybe you could do the same and have them add trees, houses,
animals in the foreground with paper.
My third graders did a watercolor architecture lesson. The background and
foreground was watercolors. The house was colored with color pencils. Turned
out great. JH
