Lesson Description

In this art class, children will be introduced to various watercolour techniques. They will begin by learning about the water wash technique. In this technique, they will use a lot of water with very little colour.  They will understand that when they use the water wash technique, they don’t need to dip their brush into paint multiple times. They will even discover that the water wash technique can be used to create various backgrounds. Next, they will learn about the ‘depositing colour’ technique. Then, they will move onto colouring with water colours.

They will be taught how to create lighter and darker shades when using water colours. Over time, with practice, children will get better at painting with watercolours!
