Winter Cardinals


Check out these adorable Cardinals.  My students made them the last week before Chrismtas so that I didn't have to take down EVERY piece of art and send it home.  It was nice to come back in January and not have blank walls all over the classroom.  I must confess that this is not my idea.  Check out this fabulous blog run by Kath Barbro, out of Sherman Oaks CA.  Click here for the lesson on painting Cardinals.  Kathy gives some pretty wonderful step by step instructions.

Here are some closeups of my kids work.

 I love how each cardinal has it's own personality.
 The kids were SOOOO proud of their work.
For me, the secret is to use Watercolouring Paper when you are using Watercolours.
