Happy Sunday, everyone! This morning, we are working on watercolor resist paintings with an Easter theme.
We followed the tutorial found at Teach Kids Art. We loved her "good shepherd" paintings where the sheep are done in white and black oil crayons. This would be a fun lesson on "finding the lost sheep" because when you paint over the sheep with water colors, they magically appear.
We ended up creating lots of variations using this same technique. You'll need to gather the following items:
-oil pastels or crayons
-watercolor paints, brushes, and water
-watercolor paper or card stock (which is what we used)
Determine what you want to write or design and do it using your oil pastels or crayons first. Then go to town with the water colors.
These were done by my children ages 3 to 10, and they all enjoyed putting a bit of themselves into it.
