From Here to There – Water Color Galaxies

Water Color GalaxiesFrom Here To There


We read From Here to There by Margery Cuyler and Yu Cha Pak. It is a good book about pointing out all the different ways you can live. Starting with the town all the way to the universe.

What we used: brushes, textured paper, water color pencils, bowl and water.

Rose and Amelia felt the textured paper. This is the first time we have used paper that has texture to it.

Rose and Amelie made rings with the water color pencils. They started with small circles and worked to bigger circles.

They changed water color pencils every few rounds.
