In this course, we will experiment with watercolor and mixed media techniques to create watercolor animals. Each week, students will draw and paint a different animal using a different watercolor technique. Animals of focus will be based on student requests. Students will interact with each other in daily feedback sessions. 

Recommended for grades 3-6
