Project #4: Imagination Painting
& Drawing Exercise #3
This project guides children through making several paintings of different sizes and learning to think with paint (without line drawing). Uses tempera and watercolor. Subject matter comes from a group of “Imagination Starters” (one-paragraph stories) and from the children themselves.
Drawing Exercise #3 guides children through making a drawing of the outside of the building where they live – a house, apartment building, house-boat, etc. – and setting it into its landscape surroundings. Uses pencil and some color. Tackles drawing something much bigger than they are.
