2nd/3rd Grade: Washes for the Walls

During our study of landscapes, Second and Third Grade have been exploring Japanese and Chinese hanging scrolls. Ink washes offer a variety of ways to experiment with brush strokes and water, so we have been testing out those methods for the past few weeks by painting mountains, waterfalls, and trees. Each painting turned out drastically different from the last, since the process included a healthy dose of unpredictability. Anything that involves water tends to be like that. But it also made the process more fun. On the final painting, we actually turned our art into hanging scrolls that could be put up in the hallway.
