What do you teach your kids and students to draw on a Friday afternoon? How about teaching them to Draw A Story about ‘Gwen The Penguin’ All you need is some good sturdy paper, a pencil, black permanent pen, an eraser and a rolled paper blending stump.( You can use your finger or a Q-Tip) If you are using a tablet just use the pen, pencil and smudge tool.
This class will continue with a complete watercolor painting over the drawing. If you are doing it in a classroom or homeschool setting, complete each session as time allows. Having several videos connected shows our young maturing artists the artistic process.
Remember choose a small piece of paper. (I have used 140lb. Canson Brand cold press watercolor paper). Depending on your budget use the best student grade watercolors to complete the following videos. Felts and colored pencils will also work if that is all you have.
Students love watching a person paint so regardless of how far you go with your Draw A Story, let them watch the whole series. We learn by watching, hearing and doing.
This second video; Paint A Penguin In A Nest, is going to show you how to add watercolors to your drawing from the first video; Draw A Penguin In A Nest. If you want you can use felts, colored pencils or pens or even a tablet if you want. See you in Part 3 when you are finished here.
