Students will explore watercolor painting with different colors by using the wet-on-wet technique on greeting card paper. They will use salt and snowflake die cuts to embellish their cards which will create a fun textural element. Students will make several cards and be able to give them to friends and loved ones.
Children who paint with watercolor learn to think with an open mind, as they develop critical-thinking skills by making decisions about what works and what doesn’t work while creating the painting in the process. Lesson will discuss the versatility of fine art skills and possible careers such as illustration and stationery design.
