Hi Katie!I used this lesson with some students who were ahead of the class using some liquid watercolors I bought at a garage sale:) The students LOVED this project!! It's a great way to introduce the "happy accident" and how it can lead to great art. Thanks for sharing!
Morgan, I'm glad your students liked the project!
Katie - I have followed your blog for the last year and it was a huge life saver! Thank you for all the great advice and awesome projects. I have a question for you. I will be taking materity leave in October and I am trying to be prepared to make sub lesson plans for 6 weeks, I have no idea where to start, do you have any suggestions or lessons that work great with a sub. Anything will help. Thanks! You can just email me back at knelson6@GMAIL.COM
Kellie, I just emailed you some suggestions. Good luck and congratulations!
I love it... very bold and graphic! kind of graffiti like, too!
The glue pump is a definite "must have" for an Elementary art teacher unless the kids bring their own glue! I always loved construction paper crayons, black sharpie markers, glittery tempera paint, and tru-ray fadelessconstruction paper (so beautiful)! Great list!
