Today we will create a neighborhood in the style of Austrian artist Hundertwasser!
Have FUN with it, and I look forward to seeing your paintings online (either at the Facebook group or Instagram #kidsartweek).
Thanks so much!
LESSON 4 SUPPLIES
Today you will need:
-- paper (any thick paper or watercolor paper)
-- water soluble markers (red, green, blue, orange, yellow, purple)
Kids Art Week 2016 - Lesson 4
The first thing we talk about in the video are the six colors in the color wheel. The "primary" colors are red, blue and yellow. The "secondary" colors are orange, purple and green. And the "complimentary" colors are two colors together that are across each other on the color wheel (red/green, blue/orange and yellow/purple).
We talked a little about this today as you will be creating your neighborhood using just these six colors, and sometimes, when you don't know what to use next, you can think, "Oh, the complimentary colors look good together!" :D
Now let's get started!
1. With your pencil, draw a box where you will put your drawing.
2. Now, using your red marker, draw your houses! You can also add lines in the sky or ground.
3. Cover your marker with a little bit of water. Be careful not too put too much water on there, or you will lose your lines! But you do want to add enough water so that the lines get squiggly, like below. Let dry.
4. Now, add more color with our markers! Think "lines" and think "slow." Don't worry about straight lines... no rulers allowed!
Play with different color combinations and begin to learn what colors you like best next to each other.
And have fun!
Here are some samples:
Have fun with this lesson! Post your images at Facebook or Instagram (#kidsartweek), and we'll see you tomorrow!
