This is a 2 part art lesson/ project: a watercolor "workshop" and a landscape painting assignment. I developed this lesson to introduce my students to all the great techniques watercolor artists use like washes, wet on wet, adding salt, etc.
Included in these 5 pages are directions for the watercolor workshop class, a watercolor landscape painting assignment including a printable self-assessment sheet that students can fill out and you can assess and grade as you like, and several visual examples and inspiration of paintings with great use of watercolor techniques .
You will need knowledge of these basic techniques to guide students through the workshop portion: flat wash, graded wash, variegated wash, wet on wet, dry brush, scumbling, adding salt and rubbing alcohol; using crayon for resist and blotting/brushing with plastic wrap. I've included a link for great tutorials on techniques in the lesson.

This lesson and painting project usually takes my students 4-5 fifty minute class periods.
