Watercolor is always a bit challenging as the kids tend to want to try to use the same techniques they do with acrylic paint. But by the end of the project, each camper got the hang of it.
Deep Cove at sunset, 11 year old
This artist had been living in Deep Cove while their house was being renovated. The landscape she chose is right in town of mountains, water and trees basked in the warm glow of sunset. I think her results are gorgeous.
waterfall, 8 year old
This artist focused on a waterfall landscape. He created a lovely composition of three different viewpoints of the landscape.
Vancouver coast, 11 year old
And it is easy to see how the progression in this triptych as the artist became more comfortable with the watercolor. When she was finished, she tried another quick landscape really allowing the watercolor to do all the work for her.

I'm not sure all the campers became huge fans of watercolor at the end of the project, but I'm certainly a fan of the works they created.
