About This Class

Are you looking for a watercolor painting project for your child?

Would you like an experienced art teacher teaching your child?

The Pigeon Watercolor Art Project may be just what you are looking for! Designed with beginners in mind, this project is perfect for children ages 5+.

This Pigeon Watercolor Art Project was inspired by The Pigeon series of books by Mo Willems. You can take a peek at the book series HERE.

There are three steps in this art project:

  • Step 1: Draw a Pigeon With Pencil
  • Step 2: Outline Pigeon With Oil Pastel or Crayon
  • Step 3: Paint Pigeon With Watercolor Paints

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.
