About This Class

Are you seeking a beginning watercolor painting class for your child?

The Enchanting Elephant Watercolor Art Project may be just what you are looking for! Designed with beginners in mind, this project is perfect for children ages 6-10 years old.

There are two steps in this art project:

  • Step 1: Drawing the Elephant 
  • Step 2: Painting the Elephant

The teaching process used for the drawing portion of the project is a kid-tested, step-by-step method that will both inspire and delight your child into drawing action! This process involves organizing shapes and lines together until a recognizable outcome is achieved.

After students complete the drawing portion of their project, they will move onto painting the project. Students will learn basic watercolor techniques and apply these techniques to complete their project. This project is designed to give young children the tools they need to begin their artistic journey into self-expression, reflection, and creative thinking.
