Re: [art_education] watercolor lesson
- Hello Terri,
You didn't specify what age or grade level, but I think these can be adapted to just about any level:
1. Watercolor Batik --- start with a light pencil drawing, then apply a heavy amount of white crayon or plain candle wax to resist the watercolors. The crayon will isolate "cells" which can be paint in any manner your students wish to.
2. Plastic wrap watercolor abstracts --- tape and/or staple watercolor to a board 3/4" plywood works just fine. While the paper is saturated with lots of intense color press on some plastic wrap (old grocery bags will do too), let dry then work back into the images with pens, crayons, markers, pastels etc.
I'm sure you will be able to find lots of examples of both lessons online, good luck!
