3rd Grade Ice Cream

4x11? Watercolors
This was the first watercolor that the 3rd grade did. It's a watercolor resist with a white crayon. It helped them practice their circles and grasp the idea of shapes overlapping. It also gave me an easy lesson to do some education on how to handle their brushes and paints properly. (More on that later.) 

I only give them red blue and yellow, so they learned how to mix brown and any other colors that they wanted. This generated a lot of questions and gave me a chance to teach them a lot.
