LJS Art Day Part 3 – Watercolour Bubbles

After lunch we had another visitor to Year 2. Anna normally runs a Watercolours club after school for Years 5 and 6 so we were very excited to find that she had come to work with us in Year 2! Anna showed us that we would be painting 1 large circle and 2 smaller ones. We could choose from 3 colours but needed to use a different colour for each circle. We painted the largest one and then pressed a piece of bubble wrap on top to make a pattern. In the first small circle we used wax to draw a picture or wrote our names which then showed up as if by magic when we painted with watercolour! We then scrunched up some white tissue paper, falttened it back out and glued it on to the third circle before painting it with one or more colours. The effect was fabulous and really enjoyed the session.
