Even thought we New Yorkers never got a true winter this year, here in the art room we are just finishing up a beautiful masking tap/watercolor resist project.
A watercolor resist painting is where the artist uses something (like oil pastels, wax crayons or in our case – tape!) to block off certain parts of their paper so that it is protected from the paint. We exercised our fine motor skills and ripped masking tape in order to create a birch tree forest in the winter. After discussing all of the different colors we can see in the sky, students got to work designing their scenes.
