For the past few days Art 1 students have been working on a watercolor project. Students observed a leaf and then drew their own. Students then cut out their leaves and traced/overlapped them to create an interesting collage. Different techniques, such as flicking water and sprinkling salt onto the wet paint, were used to create texture. For most students, this was the first time they had ever used watercolor paint. It was fun to see how much they enjoyed this medium!
