Watercolor Painting for 9-12 yr olds
Time & Location
About The Event
These art classes will run for one hour, 5:30-6:30PM, every Monday for four weeks. This course will focus on watercolor painting techniques. Here is a break down of what we'll cover each week:
- Week 1 (Sept 16): Washes and Tones
During this first week we will paint landscape paintings that will illustrate how light and dark tones can be used to create depth, even in monochromatic art. We will also discuss the term "wash" and how it's used in watercolor paintings.
- Week 2 (Sept 23): Negatives and Positives
This week we will discuss how to paint leaves and flowers, and why it's important to be aware of negative and positive space in a composition.
- Week 3 (Sept 30): Watercolor and Ink
During this class I will show children how to create whimsical flowers and plants with watercolors and ink. This will show the children that mediums or methods can be mixed to create different effects.
- Week 4 (Oct 7): Watercolor Fall Greeting Cards
This week I will guide children through creating beautiful greeting cards that can be displayed throughout the fall or sent to family and friends.
These classes are meant to build off of each other, and are therefore combined into a course. Please make sure each date will work for you so your child can make it to every class. Children will go home with a painting each week (or each following week if pieces are still drying).
