In this camp, kids will work with the three primary colors and use wet on wet & wet on dry watercolor techniques. In wet on wet watercolor, because the wet paint is laid on wet paper, the colors flow, blending beautifully into one another in unexpected ways. Instead of mixing colors into jars, the colors will mix directly onto the paper. Kids will be able to explore secondary colors by experiment and create landscapes with one, two and three colors.
