Home Art Studio ~ Lesson 3

image52

We are reviewing a fabulous home art curriculum, Home Art Studio! We are using the third grade level, so Pac and Krash can participate together.  I am blogging through our art projects to help keep me {the non-art lover} accountable!

This week’s project was a Vegetable Watercolor Painting, when I saw the word paint I panicked a bit. The oil pastels were also involved, as well as a pencil-I could handle those.

Since we had recently begun a garden, this was a perfect project.  We began by researching vegetables that grow underground and looking up photos of them online.  We drew simple sketches of what we saw so we wouldn’t forget what they looked like!  Krash chose to just work on a carrot, Pac chose 3 vegetables.

We watched the DVD before beginning, and then referred to the printed lesson plan while working.  From start to finish this was a pretty stressful project for me.  I don’t handle art well and this one was tricky for me for some reason ~ maybe having multiple materials going at once {paint, pastels, pencil}. The project itself was fabulous, it is just me with this whole paint = stress problem..  The boys drew their vegetables, then went over them with oil pastels, then added the watercolor.
