Re: Watercolor pencils

       Judy mentioned a watercolor pencil lesson based on Georgia O'Keefe. I
did a lesson like that when I was student teaching with third graders. We
talked first about Georgia O'Keefe, and looked at some of her work and it's
characteristics. The next class, I put a piece of fruit or vegetable in a brown
paper bag, enough for each student to have thier own. Students randomly
selected a bag (for suspense - because they did not know what we were going to do -
and to avoid cries of "I want the orange!). I had a knife so I could cut the
fruit in half if the students wanted to draw them that way. It was a
successful project, although I think now we would focus on blending colors as Judy
suggested. I can send a picture if anyone would like. :) Breanne
