Sixth graders studied cool and warm color schemes. We then used wet on wet watercolor technique to paint the background in either cool or warm colors then used a wet on dry technique to paint the bird using the opposite color scheme.
Welcome to Mrs. Dowd’s Art Class. I teach 6-8 grade art to a bunch of incredible kids. Here I will be documenting my lessons and work for my students, parents, and other educators. I hope you enjoy our Middle School Journey to the Art Side.
