Using watercolor painting in the classroom during an arts integration lesson plan is a fun and exciting technique!  In this final worksheet of our series this week, you’ll find descriptions of watercolor techniques as well as lesson plan ideas for various contents.  I hope these exciting techniques and lesson plans have given you some great ideas for engaging and connecting with your students.  Please let me know how it all goes!

    I love these watercolor ideas. I used to use wTercolors every year in my music classroom when we studied impressionistic composer Debussy and listened to Clair du Lune. It was such a great lesson and the kids loved the integration of arts and music. I may need to dust that lesson off for a studio day in the spring.

    Can’t wait to share these new techniques!

      I’m glad that you liked them! Sounds like a fun lesson with Debussy – I might have to try that! We learned these techniques when our teachers did a professional day at the Columbia Arts Association, a local art gallery and studio. The artists were given our 2nd quarter curriculum objectives and they designed some lessons that used art to meet those objectives. They then taught us all these great techniques. You might want to do that with your PLaiC – it was a BIG hit for our teachers!
