After we finished out main watercolor assignment this week, we had some fun exploring with the medium. We went as a class and took a short walk to the nearest neighborhood and collected leaves. We came back to the classroom and students painted a soft watercolor background and explored with the leaves. They tried their hand at printing, stamping, and painting around them. There were also a few arguments on the leaf types, which was funny hearing who remembered what from Middle School. (At least they remembered ;) Some of the results were stunning. It was a nice ending to a very tedious watercolor project.
