YODA Art with Watercolor Crayons

We recently started a new Art program, ARTistic Pursuits (review coming in March!).  Let me tell you, Iron Man is very excited for all the new art materials that are showing up in our house, thanks to this program.  His new interest has thrown me for a loop, since I don't know the first thing about creating art, but I am willing to learn for him.

We've used different types of watercolor paints, and watercolor pencils, but thanks to our new art curriculum, he has been experimenting with watercolor crayons too.  He has enjoyed them, and has asked to do his own creations after his projects.

Of course he chose Star Wars!

He is still getting the hang of how much water to use, and you can see he picked his paper up before it was dry, but I just thought it was too cute!  Of course, I'm mom, so I'm allowed to think that.

I'm not going to lie, it is sometimes frustrating that his favorite subjects (math, science and art) were my least favorites as a student, but I love that he is so excited about art, and so open to trying new things.  It definitely keeps things interesting for me!
