Kids Art: Water Colors and Elmer's Glue...

Last week was my last after school art class for this year....So sad!!  :(
I truly had the best group of kids, and they turned out some fantastic art work!!
I think this last project is proof of their artist ability!! 
These are kids from 1st to 5th grade....
MIGHTY - FINE!!


So here is the fun and simple lesson....


Like usual it started out as a directed draw on the wipe board, this time of my old Betta "Flame"...
(who sadly he is no longer with us).


Any-hoo
After completing their drawing, I had the kids trace over their lines with Elmer's Glue, mixed with black acrylic paint.  (I just gave each glue bottle a few good squirts and then mixed it up the best I could).


I also had them practice on a scrap piece of paper, just to get the hang of it...
You need a nice even pressure on the bottle.
We then left them to dry until the following week...



That's when the real fun began....
Time to paint!!!
The glue works a s a wonderful barrier and keeps the watercolors where they belong...
Well mostly.  :)


And..
The thick Black outlines really make the colors pop!!


Yes I know these last 3 fish aren't Betta's...

My assistant Joanna did the directed draw for these lovelies...
Nice job Joanna!!!

Although this was my last class...don't worry I do have one more
