What a beautiful week to make art in the park…Central Park! We made like an Impressionist and went en plein air for our 6-9’s Art Adventures.
Our challenge: to paint a landscape outside using a combination of 3 materials- pencil, craypas AND watercolor.
We practiced some tree drawing techniques: the Y technique- drawing branches in the shape of Y’s!
We learned different techniques in watercolor & wax resist with craypas
and background, mid-ground and foreground to capture a more realistic landscape
The Winter Snow was our theme this week for Art Adventures: From Salt dough Snow Mama & her babies (with our 2-5 year old classes) to Winter Wonderland Salt Watercolor Landscape exploration (our 8-11 year old class)! It was a fun snow art day for all ages.
We’re preparing for our upcoming school year and making art everyday! A favorite at Art Adventures, we’re taking our abstract salt watercolor paintings a step further with beachscapes!
