For our watercolor project, students were able to choose from two options: doing a landscape or doing an animal. Once they decided on their subject, they found a reference picture. Using the reference picture, the drew out their picture and broke it into closed shapes. Once the picture was transferred to the watercolor paper, students went over their lines with sharpie and began using different colors and watercolor techniques in each closed shape of their painting. This took quite a few weeks, but I think the students did a great job focusing and the results show that effort!
