Tane Steed of Caldwell Elementary won a 500.00 grant to further the education of watercolor to grade school children.
Doing this project during this pandemic required Tane to develop a system where each student has their own set of paints, whether they are on-site or virtual.
Tane decided to create a Qor Dot Paint Card for each student. Dot cards can easily be labeled and stored for on-site students or mailed in a regular envelope to virtual students. Each dot card will have between six to ten colors depending on grade level.
The second grade project will explore mixing/blending colors in a Pumpkin themed painting. Third and fourth grade students will brainstorm theme ideas and vote on a subject. Student projects will be used in our annual fundraiser. Second grade normally does an impressionist style painting. Third grade creates a mixed media painting of a hot air balloon, and fourth grade paints hearts in the style of Peter Max.
