I gave The Peas a lesson in watercolors yesterday.
To begin the lesson, I had each of the girls use several of the brushes with orange watercolor, so they could see what the brush width looked like and what the watercolor would do. I wanted them to notice the watercolor was transparent.
Next, I had copied, on watercolor paper, the Chameleon from Art Lesson for Kids. Each of the girls drew legs and eye on their paper.
Next it was time to paint. We used several different colors. I told the girls to try and mix some of the colors together, just to see what would happen.
Here are the final results:
The reason Pea#2 had a fit, was because the eye on her Chameleon did not look like mine. Nether did the legs and I had to help her draw them. So, I think I will not join in on the art fun for a while. I do not want them to compare their work with mine.
It was a fun lesson and I know the girls are looking forward to next weeks lesson.
