Exploring with Watercolor

October 20, 2020 | Chris Gasca

The second grade has been working with watercolors; learning many techniques along the way in order to accomplish our final project goal of a self portrait painting.

We have been working on color spectrums, blending colors, and seeing what happens when we add crayon and watercolors in the same picture. They are focusing on detailed drawings of themselves, using a mirror, to create a great self portrait.


The students have been working so hard during this watercolor unit. They are having a lot of fun in the process. Stay tuned for all the master peaces at the end of our unit!!!

Chris Gasca first learned about Mustard Seed School through his wife, Clarissa, who is an alumna. Impressed with the education and the community, they enrolled their three children. Mr. Gasca saw firsthand the love, Godly character, and incredible skill of MSS teachers. He joined the staff as a substitute teacher in 2016 and felt right at home. Today he's an Assistant Teacher in the Forest Class and works with second and third grade students. He loves spending time with children in the park where he has been known to be a fierce competitor in foot races and team sports. He thoroughly enjoys building relationships with MSS students, especially learning beside them and helping them grow in character and self esteem. Whether through academics, extracurricular activities, or providing emotional support, Mr. Gasca always looks for the best way to invest in every single student.
