About This Class

Are you looking for a fun watercolor painting class for your child?

The Sea Turtle 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 Sea Turtle
  • Step 2: Painting the Sea Turtle

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.

Supplies and materials needed for this project:

This was a lot of fun to make. My salt didn't work as well as I had hoped but it is a pretty effect.
My daughter answered all your questions and followed along the whole time! We are out of watercolors so she will get to try it this weekend. Very cute!
