birds will fly
So were are wrapping up our first semester here at school and so my students will fly off to music and I will catch up with all the music kids. It is an exciting and sad time all at the same time.
My 7th grade students just finished great bird paintings as I am sure you can already tell with all of my fun bird references (wink, wink).
They sketched from photographs and then painted them in with watercolors. I began this lesson last year and it is a keeper, plus it flows nicely with my new 8th grade animal portrait lesson. The students have the opportunity to really build their watercolor skills.
Be Well and Enjoy!
