7th and 8th grade artists learned watercolor techniques including masking, wet-on-dry, wet-on wet and watercolor wash. Watercolor paint is a a difficult medium but after a little practice, middle school artists created these beautiful Birch tree compositions.

Utilizing the Photo Booth application (and our new Studio 101 Apple computers!) Middle school artists worked with a partner to photograph their profiles.
