These watercolor painting were created by children aged 4 to 10 years old who participated in the 2016 summer program at the Garage Cultural. The sense of color expresses who they were feeling about painting!
These lovely watercolor paintings were created Fall 2016. The fourth grade students at the Waldorf School where I teach part-time were inspired by the changing of the season. We also created two lines poems about each other paintings.
Winter paintings created by fifth grade students at the Waldorf School. This is one of the first times they painted wet on dry, so it was challenging! I think they really caught the mood of a cold winter night!
These portraits of MLK Jr. were drawn by my eighth grade students at the Waldorf School. This is the FIRST time that they applied a lesson in proportions of the human face. We had a wonderful discussion about MLK’s values and the thoughts and perspectives they have gleaned from conversations with their parents and the student’s hopes and dreams for America.
The sixth grade students at the Waldorf School have been studying light and value. This was their first attempt in using watercolor to shape landscapes. I love how they each have a unique feeling of time of day!
More portraits of Dr. MLK Jr. created by students between the ages 5 and 8 years old. They knew so much about his values and his work, I was humbled! They will grow up to be excellent leaders and role models! There is hope in this world, I am sure of it. It lies in our children!
