We love to watercolor paint at preschool. Many students have experience with painting from watercolor trays either at home or at school.
I introduced liquid watercolors in jars with only the primary colors - red, yellow, and blue. These colors can be mixed to create all the colors of the rainbow. The liquid watercolors provide bright, rich colors, and are easy to mix and blend on the watercolor paper.
The students don’t need directions about how to mix colors. They are naturally curious to see what happens when colors mix and blend, and it becomes creative play - and that play produces beautiful results!
