Art - Lesson 2; Artists Imagine

Lesson 2 of our art curriculum was "Artists Imagine" and after reading the lesson and studying Marc Chagall's painting we did the project.  The project was to use your imagination to draw your picture, then use watercolor crayons to color it and then use the watercolor brush to magically change the "crayon" look into watercolor  paint! She loved it and it was her first time using watercolor crayons.

She drew herself with her friend ice skating on the ice and then me and her friend's mom watching them:

The watercolor crayons we use are the quality ones from the art store.  The brand we use is Staedtler's Karat Aquarell watercolor crayons.  For drawing, K uses drawing pencils with a vinyl artist eraser.
