Fifth Grade Watercolor Landscapes

Over the last month, Fifth-Graders have been creating watercolor landscapes. They started by stamping lines with black acrylic paint to create a foreground, middleground and background.

Next, students applied different watercolor techniques that they had been practicing to add color to their compositions. Students experimented with washes, glazing, applying salt, sponging, and dry brush techniques.

I love the variety of solutions to the problem of creating a foreground, middleground and background. These pieces are beautiful, and Fifth Grade artists can be really proud of them!
