For the next 3 weeks we will be studying about the artist Rembrandt. This week we read the bible story of when Jesus calmed the sea and did a stormy sea painting. We were replicating *wink* Rembrandt's version of the story.
Their pictures were done with black crayon for the ship, blue and green watercolors for the water, and salt to "foam" the sea water!
What a hoot! I was trying so hard to be very specific since most of them are unsure of art supplies in general and I failed. After tracing their hands I told them to "color their hands with the primary colors." Well, I should have said, "color your PAPER hands with the primary colors." It's going to be a fun year!
