Watercolor Art

Here are all of the colors we made.

I tried to let the children explore on their own how to use the paints. The few pointers I would give out were to
- avoid pushing on the brushes, but to glide them gently (same with markers- it seems like children have a very natural inclination to jab pointy things as hard as possible) and
- to paint all over the paper instead of in one small (water logged) place.
