This blog is a working record of my experience as an elementary art teacher. My successes, not-quite-successes, ideas, inspiration, projects, challenges and general art classroom "stuff" can be found here, along with some tidbits about life outside the classroom once in a while.
My fourth graders and I recently played with watercolors, the wet-on-wet technique was the goal. They were scared! Lol... when they realized that the colors would not stay where they put them, they lost it. But I assured them that it would work out in the end when we added oil pastels to define shapes and add detail. They were pretty pleased with their creations!
