Watercolor Piggies

Rodeo time is once again here in Houston, Texas. So I thought a few ‘western’ inspired projects would be appropriate. The first project that the Kindergarten class tackled this week was an adorable watercolor painting of a pig. This project was inspired by a picture found on pinterest;  http://pinterest.com/pin/46654546110921663/

Students were given three different sized circles to trace in order to form the pig’s body, head and nose. Legs, ears and a tail were added to form a front view of a pudgy pig!  Students also learned about horizon lines and their importance in art.  Color was added with watercolor paint. Once the paintings were dry I outlined the details to make their pictures pop! These pictures are definitely frame-worthy 🙂
