Windows and sky color!

Updated: Nov 15, 2019

The days are much shorter and we are seeing more sunsets before bedtime here in San Diego. Sunsets make me think of the beautiful children's book "Sky Color" by Peter H. Reynolds. It's a story about a girl who doesn't have blue, so she paints the sky using other colors. Here is a fun process art project based on this book, great for kids age 3 and up. If you want to learn more about the benefits of process art you can read my old blog post about it here.

After reading another children's book called "Windows" by Julia Denos I had been thinking about ways to do a painting project involving a window. Last week my daughter's Kindergarten teacher asked me if I could teach another art project, and we decided this would be a fun one to try.

Supplies needed: 12 x 18 Watercolor paper, 1/2 inch blue painters tape, pan watercolors or cake tempera, watercolor brushes, containers for water, paper towels, white tempera paint,
