You can learn how to paint a snowman that is not small and boring. Make him (or her) much more interesting with close cropping and a few other special touches. To get those white windy lines, students need to draw them with a white crayon before painting over with watercolor paint.
• Watercolor paper
• Black Sharpie marker
• Liquid watercolor paint
PREP: Print a Snowman tutorial for each student.
1. Students draw the snowman in pencil, according to the tutorial.
2. The drawing is traced with a marker.
3. Snow lines are drawn with a white crayon, and the stick arm is filled in with marker.
4. The painting is finished with liquid watercolors. Encourage students to work slowly to avoid puddles. A bright white snowman looks great against the blue sky.
