Watercolor Technique Landscapes - Kids Art Class

 This was another idea I found on Pinterest.  We did a different watercolor technique on each section of landscape (cut from watercolor paper).  The sky was done with margarita salt sprinkled over a wash (I tried several different salts and the margarita salt had the most interesting results).  Some other techniques we used were sponging wet on wet, alcohol drops, splattering and stamping wet on dry.  I love how the projects turned out.  The kids had a lot of fun with the salt and alcohol techniques. 


  1. They are gorgeous

  2. Love these! Fantastic watercolor lesson!

  3. These are awesome! I'm a volunteer art teacher. What a wonderful idea. I'm going to give it a whirl with the kids. I wonder how this will work if I use dollar store Kool-ade (sp) type drink mix w/o sugar as the paint. It's really inexpensive and the kids live the way it smells. I guess we'll find pity next week!
