Intro to Art: Introduction to Watercolor

I can:

  1. Practice using the medium WATERCOLOR
  2. Discuss the differences between various WATERCOLOR techniques

REMEMBER this week’s sketchbook is still scheduled for turning in this Friday (Feb 21).  Along with that, you will want to have your Contour Line drawing of Picasso’s “Seated Man” completed for class Friday as well. 
For the next few classes we will be exclusively working with WATERCOLOR, so while it may seem you don’t need your sketchbook, make sure you have it each day!

I can:

  1. Identify the various part/elements in a GLAZE
