Painting with Acrylics

I showed the kids how to draw a tree, then outline it with marker and paint with acrylic paint. I encouraged them to use lots of color within the painting, and showed them how different it was to paint with acrylic paint, versus watercolor.

 I brought in some tree silhouettes for inspiration, letting them know they could mix and match different elements, or simply draw their own tree.

They gathered their paints.

They had their clay, to paint from last week too.

I love every step . . . I'd be tempted to copy the drawings (or have them repeat them) and have the kids use a different media for completion . . . watercolour pencils/crayons or collage. They're just stunning Jane. I hope I can do something similar when I give up the day-job!
