I searched for an inspiring piece of art and found this:
|"Haliburton Winter" by Satish. 8x10". Acrylic on canvas.|
When I shared it with my team, they had a similar project they had done a few years ago that they found on Art Projects for Kids, a website by amazing art teacher Kathy Barbro.
I loved the project, but wanted to make some changes to reflect the literature we read in class. I adjusted some of the steps in Kathy's project to make it a bit more like the Satish painting. Here's what I did:
Crayon Resist: When you color with a white crayon, the area where you colored will 'resist' the watercolor paint, leaving that area white. :)
- One sheet of watercolor paper for each student (I used 1/2 sheet)
- Blue painter's tape
- One white crayon for each student
- One watercolor set for each student

There's still time this Winter to make this beautiful project!! I'm hanging it on my wall with a writing about "Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening".
Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope you had a wonderful family-filled, food-filled, LOVE-filled holiday!!
