Rock Watercolor


We're going to be using two unlikely supplies today to make something wonderful with rocks and watercolors! Part of creativity is using unlikely tools to make something new. Instead of just using watercolor paint, we'll incorporate rocks to create textures and shapes! This project is all about the ride and not necessarily the destination!

-Watercolor or heavyweight paper

-Paint Brush

-Various size rocks

-Watercolor palette

-Water basin



Step 1: Gather your supplies and unique set of rocks; small rocks work best for small hands

Step 2: Use your rocks as stencils to paint around, use them in place of brushes to add paint to your paper by first painting on the rocks, or use the rocks to spread around your paint that is already on the paper.

Step 3: Admire your unique, nature-made artwork!
