9 and 10 year olds.
One more portrait lesson borrowed from ktjoarts.blogspot.co.nz/ Many thanks.
I asked the children to experiment with the water colour paint. They were to make the paint run into the colour next to it. I asked them not to put complimentary colours next to one another because they turn muddy.
They drew an oval then a line down the centre which kinks out to create a nose. Features were added to one side, then the other side, trying to make them a bit different.
Water colour paint is added, trying to make them blend a bit.
When they were dry, they went over the lines with indian ink and kebab sticks.
