This week the Sky Class began exploring with watercolor.
Watercolor helps children…
When you dip them in the paint and put it on the paper, it shows up on the back.
Water colors are watery.
You dip the paintbrush into the paint and take it out.
What is that bird with the red belly?
At my Nana and Papa’s house, there is a bird feeder and different types of birds come to eat.
I saw a hawk come really close to my window at home.
With this enthusiasm, the children began studying birds by closely observing fiction books all about birds.
Next the children used a flair pen to make observational drawing of birds.
Finally they will use watercolors to paint their observational drawings.
