Today, my grandson and I worked on Week 1's Warm-Up lesson. Here's his work-in-progress. We viewed the lesson on my laptop while we worked, step-by-step. We each picked a split complementary color scheme. He chose his main color and helped find the watercolor crayons that matched the main and complementary colors. As we were using "real artist supplies" (expensive), he took great care to use them carefully. He loved using the brayer to apply gesso and bubble wrap stamping.
Here's his finished page. He drew the hearts, I cut them out and glued them where he wanted. We're both very pleased with the outcome.
And here's my finished page. We used slightly different colors (so we wouldn't have to share colors), but they look very similar here.
The second part of the lesson was to create a Guardian and choose a word for the year. I used the same color scheme. I'm happy with it, but always feel like I muck it up with the handwriting.
This lesson is by Micki Wilde, a new teacher for me!
I'm quite far behind, but life has just been way too busy.
A fun lesson in creativity by Carla Sonheim!
