An Inspiring Day: Learning More About Watercolor

Hello,

We were lucky enough to have an expert in watercolor come and share some techniques with us.  It was also fun and special that this expert, Ronnie, is Rachel's grandmother!  Here you see the students working on a final piece, from start to finish, using a pulling technique of crumpled tissue paper to create clouds, as well as a dried natural sponge technique of creating a lacy texture.

Thank you to Rachel's family for coordinating this, and to Ronnie for dreaming up such an organized and inspirational lesson!  We really appreciate your generosity of time, knowledge and supplies.

Have a lovely day, Jennifer


























Each student tested these techniques to come out with their own special effect.  Just beautiful!
