This lesson is a sure thing when you are looking for a project to build student confidence with art making. Not only is working with watercolor in these unique ways very forgiving, but the abstraction of this project leads to some serene landscape compositions. It’s also a great way to introduce watercolor techniques while working with the concept of space within landscapes. Try tying in Monet’s Impressionist landscapes for an art history connection or even a more modern Impressionist take such as the work of Erin Hanson.
