Remember laying in the grass and gazing up at the clouds as a child? Finding things in the shapes the clouds make? Today we're drawing on the part of every child that loves to lay on their back and let their imaginations run wild with this Scribble Drawings and Painting Watercolor art project.
Homeschooling: Scribble Drawings and Painting Watercolor
It's time to let go and scribble! Let your pencil take the lead and your imagination soar. For an alternate class idea, collect small cut-out scribbles to create a large art collage, or instead of colored pencils use watercolors or the details.
- drawing paper (2 sheets)
- colored pencils
- glue stick
- paper towels and newspaper for watercolors
- Using a pencil, start scribbling in a circular motion over your entire page without lifting your pencil. Keep your drawing loose and loopy. Keep your pencil in contact with the paper at all times, crossing over the lines you made often.
- Examine your scribbles by holding your paper up and rotating the paper in all directions. Look for objects in the scribbles and outline them with you pencil so they are more apparent. If you can't find something in your scribble, have a family member or friend take a look at your scribble. They are sure to find something.
- Using colored pencils, add details and color to the objects you have found.
- Cut out your finished scribble drawing and set aside.
- Meanwhile, on a second piece of paper create a background with watercolors for your drawing. Let dry.
- To finish your project, use a glue stick to adhere your drawing the the watercolor background.
