This lesson plan can be done in one hour or two 30 minute periods. It teaches the beginner how to activate their water colors, pull their brushes and practice line work. A vocabulary sheet is included, but not required part of the lesson, making this lesson appropriate for Kindergartners also. THis lesson is mostly printables. YOU will need to supple the shapes to be outlined or painted.
My favorite part of this lesson is the worksheet containing a guide the the students paint supplies; and he or she can cut and glue the color words onto the correct paint wells, then color the worksheet. It gives every age a dance to practice the recognition of color words.
Answer keys are provided. A link to an online video is also provided.
Adaptations are included for age groups and adding writing to this art lesson.
