Water color can be difficult if you don't know some simple rules to follow. But once you know those rules you can really get the paints to do what you want them to. This is a very simple class to learn painting flowers that will give your child the first level of confidence they will need to try other paintings. They will learn to control the brush and that will start them on their way with watercolor painting. They do not need any prior experience just a willingness to listen, follow...
My goal with this little painting of whimsical flowers is to have the young student learn to control the paint and brush. I want them to have a painting that they can be proud of and enjoy.
I was an art teacher to grades 4-12 for 9 years. I didn't like to see my students frustrated because frustration is just one step away from giving up and not trying again. It's difficult once you get frustrated to try again. So let's just avoid the frustration all together. I want to encourage them to try new things but teach them that there are ways to work with the paint so that the paints works for them. It will be an enjoyable experience.
Supplies needed: Watercolor pan set (please do not use dollar store types - there is simply very little pigment in them and it will be frustrating for your child) Crayola is a good brand to start with. 1 soft medium sized brush and one thin line brush works well. two containers for water one for clean and one to rinse out brushes. water color paper (must be labeled water color or mixed media paper) Please do not use copier paper. crayons They must have a thin line black marker to complete the picture. Best if it is permanent black marker like a thin line sharpie.
35 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
At this age it is best if an adult stays with them during the class. They may need assistance and hands on direction.
