Watercolor Gardens

This was a fun watercolor project for my Grade One class.  We first painted 'blobs' of different colors using watercolor paints starting with the lightest color and ending with the darkest.  They painted approximately 6 blobs with each colour. 

When they were dry the students filled in the
remaining background with green paint.

(Need to remove the flash from my camera!)

Using black markers the students drew little circles in each blob and then drew petals by extending lines from the circles to the outer edge of the blobs.  I had them practice first before attempting on their artwork. 

Some children had some difficulty getting their petals to fill the entire paint blob but were able to add extra petals to fill the space they had missed.
