Applying, Creating and Exploring with Watercolor and Oil Pastels

Kinder and First Grade

Explore- undertake a systematic process of discovery
 Create- evolve from one one's thought or imagination, as a work or invention

After modeling  various watercolor techniques, students were encouraged to explore on their own; trying what was modeled but also encouraged to find their own discoveries.  The first week only  watercolor sets were used.   The second week, both watercolor and oil pastels were used.  This way, students could  synthesize both mediums to create an original artwork.
