My students have done a fantastic job in creating their autumn harvest paintings. This is thanks to the frugalcrafter Lindsay Weirich’s tutorial on How to Paint Decorative Corn in Watercolour/Pen & Ink-Craft for Thanksgiving.
This is a watercolour project that works well with children in grades 4-8. It is simple to put together and can be interpreted in many different ways. Similar to the tutorial, I first showed the students a demonstration on how to draw the shape of the corn and husks, outline with a fine sharpie and finally use various colours in their painting palette. It was a lot of fun!
