Kandinsky Watercolor Painting

kandinsky watercolorThis project worked really well with my last afterschool watercolor class. And that was with over 40 kids (kinder through 5th) in one not-so-large art room! I’ll add my tips on how to paint with these conditions below.
PREP: I pre-printed the grid lines on letter-size watercolor paper using my file posted HERE. About 80 spillproof cups with a variety of Dick Blick Student Liquid Watercolor paints were also set up before class.
1. With Kandinsky’s original painting in view, students drew concentric circles in each square with a crayon (no need to start with pencils). They were to press really hard to make a wall that would help keep colors from running together. They also traced the straight, computer-printed lines.
2. Using the liquid watercolors, students could take one color and use it randomly throughout their drawing, then go on to another. It would speed things up and allow paint to dry to minimize bleeding. I also now leave a roll of paper towels on each table to catch the inevitable spills. That’s it, I think this would make a great fundraising project.

    I have realized that over the course of building a relationship with real estate managers, you’ll be able to come to understand that, in every real estate transaction, a payment is paid. Ultimately, FSBO sellers will not “save” the commission. Rather, they struggle to win the commission simply by doing a agent’s work. In accomplishing this, they shell out their money along with time to complete, as best they are able to, the obligations of an agent. Those duties include exposing the home via marketing, presenting the home to buyers, constructing a sense of buyer emergency in order to induce an offer, organizing home inspections, dealing with qualification checks with the mortgage lender, supervising maintenance, and assisting the closing of the deal.
