Here is another attempt at using my Pinterest ideas...the above sample inspired a fun fall sharpie and "watercolor markering" project for 7th grade.
|We started by learning how to draw a simple pumpkin.|
|Students chose whether to put their pumpkin in the middle|
or the bottom left or right of their 12 by 12 page.
|We then divided the rest of the page into 8 sections.|
We had fun drawing in the various symbols of fall, outlining with black sharpie and marker, then using a wet brush to move the marker color around.
The "watercolor markering" was way easier to control than traditional watercolor, and even created a bit of a shading effect. I just love how these turned out!!!
Thanks to Margaret Storer-Roche for the great idea!!!
