Preparation for Stonewall Jackson Elementary-4/19/06 & 4/26/06

I'm posting this so that future teachers and JWS instructors can use it as a guide as to what they can expect when conducting a watercolor workshop.

First after introducing myself or being introduced by the art teacher, I give a mini lecture using visual aids. Before hand, I ask the art teacher about any themes or projects the kids are presently working on and then I try to find visual aids that fit. The Cummer Museum is an excellent resource for educational materials to be used in the classroom. The contact person there is Fran Phelps.

The lecture will be on Winslow Homer and Vincent Van Gohn and there differences in there watercolor technique and application. Some of the questions I asked the children:

1. What objects or shapes do you see when you look at the painting A and painting B?

2. What colors were used?

3. What feelings do those particular colors they make you happy or sad ?
