Re: 4th grade watercolor landscapes

Hi Christine -- can you give me more information about the Watercolor Workbook -- author, etc? This sounds like a wonderful idea -- I think a step-by-step thing with this age level might be best as they really do want to make things that look "right" and I don't often give them the opportunity for realistic drawing and painting. So many other things to do!!! (Hmmm, maybe that's why I'm seeing a problem in the first place!!!)
Thanks so much --

  If you have the Watercolor Workbook, it takes you through step by step on how
  to do trees w/ shading. My suggestion would be to use this ref and the next
  time they come in take them through it step by step as a class- have done
  this w/ 5th's and it does take them a whole class. You'll need to provide
  some palettes for them to mix/ dilute on.
  Hope this helps
  ps of course, have them create more than one tree, maybe 3, one each in fore,
  mid, backgrounds so there is a chang ein intensity of color from atmospheric
  just my thoughts..... ---
