Summer camp 2013, Bug Jars

I'll be posting some photos from this summer's camps over the next few days.
These are the "Bug Jars" by the 7and 8 olds drying on the patio.

We first drew large jars lightly in pencil, making sure we covered most of the page. These are 11"x15."

  The kids picked a selection of leaves from the garden and began filling their jars. 

 ...then a "bug brainstorming session"

 We used watercolor paints and inks in contrasting colors. We painted our bugs and leaves first, backgrounds second, and jugs third so that our colors would not blend into each. With black ink the final step was painting around all of objects.
