Kindergarten Brushstroke Watercolor Paintings

This year with my kindergarten students, I have been focusing more on techniques and materials, and a little less on the end product.  For example, instead of giving the students suggestions on what they should paint with watercolor paints, we went over brushstrokes.

Students practiced in the air first, then tried using the paints to make thick, thin, dry, wet, curvy, straight, close together, and spread out brushstrokes.  The results are pretty fun – see for yourself below.  This lesson was a follow-up to drawing basics.  Students compared and contrasted their drawing basics and lines to these paintings.  No pictures of that though, sorry, next time!
