Acrylic Painting lessons with kids

The winter session is in full swing! 

This session the 1-3 grade students will be learning all about color. We started with a quick look at color wheel and talked about warm and cool colors. We got into the project quickly using a limited pallet of cool blue, black and white.   



 Students did a quick sketch with colored pencils to establish the composition. Next they blocked in the background starting with a dark strip of blue across the top and then blue with lots of white. Students used horizontal brush strokes to emphasis the landscape. 



Paintings are by 1-3 grade students. Acrylic on canvas board, 9"x11".



We discussed shadows and light sources to make our snowmen look more 3 dimensional. Brushstrokes for the snowman would go in  a circle, thi time to emphasize its round shape.  Last step was the snow. I think they are pretty awesome!
