Layering and Letting Go

You can really tell when a student feels free to create, it shows in every mark. They are able to capture their thoughts and represent them immediately.   As I look at these pieces I find myself mesmerized.  Notice the symmetry in the above piece? Was that intentional or planned?  This is a first grader.  What world is this I ask?  I love thinking about it, what a gift.  Art is so giving; one person creates, the viewer receives.

Central Idea:  Artists are often inspired by nature.
Techniques addressed:

  • Layering watercolor
  • Crayon resist
  • Wash
