About This Class

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

Would you like an experienced art teacher instructing your child through the creative process?

The Perky Peacock Watercolor Painting Project might be just what you are looking for! Designed with beginners in mind, this lesson is perfect for children ages 6-10 years old.

There are two steps in this art project:

  • Step 1: Drawing a Peacock
  • Step 2: Painting a Peacock

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 lesson is designed to give young children the tools they need to begin their artistic journey into self-expression, reflection, and creative thinking.

THank you Em Winn! I've wanted to try using watercolours for such a long time but never got up the courage. Your class was a lovely project to get me started. I've shortlisted a bunch of your other courses to follow up with!
