Winter watercolor paintings @WBCL

Kids love to paint and wowing them with using watercolors always works no matter how many times they do it. The idea of the watery paint taking on part of the art just amazes everyone. This project used an interesting surface--the back side of packs of artist paper covers which is much like water color paper.
 I drew a general design of a landscape for them then turned them loose. They did the sky and dried it then the land and a river with a few trees. We added some great snowy white paint to finish the projects. All of them are a bit different and everyone was smiling. Parents are able to get into the projects with the younger kids too.
