HOW IT WORKS
Once you order your book, you can visit the website and view the specific supply list for your particular book. At first I was nervous that I would have to spend a ton of money on the materials for these projects. But once I ordered everything I needed, I hadn't spent that much even when ordering for three children! When your materials are on hand you can begin! The first few lessons taught the use of watercolor crayons. Honestly, I had never even heard of this method of painting! First, you color with watercolor crayon and then use a paintbrush and water to go over the crayon and "paint." At first my kids struggled with the detailed items, everything seemed to smear, but then once they focused on drawing larger figures on their pictures they started to get the hang of it! Below, they had to draw a picture of a time that they enjoyed. They were supposed to remember the emotions and feelings that felt at that time and try to portray it in the picture. The picture below was done by my second grader who drew the time when he found his cat outside in the woodpile. It was a kitten when he rescued it and it has become a part of the family ever since!

Yeah, part of the family. And, part of our homeschool art class. Poor cat.
