Watercolor Techniques

Watercolor techniques - exciting and magical!  Students divide the paper into 12 rectangles labeled per technique.  When complete they cut them up, mix them up into an abstract landscape and re-label.  As they assemble the landscape they are making decisions about color placement, overlapping shapes and balancing it all out to name a few.  It helps them to keep the techniques in mind for future projects while making a spectacular landscape.
The top photo is my abstract landscape.  The three pages of techniques are courtesy of two wonderful aides that visit my room this year.  Student landscapes and techniques are just as sweet.  I just didn't catch them before the scissors did today.
