Waldorf Watercolor Painting

Today my monthly post as guest contributor at SimpleHomeschool is a how-to on wet-on-wet watercolor painting as practiced in Waldorf education.

It’s a subject on which I’ve been wanting to write for a while, since I’ve gotten many calls from customers who are interested in purchasing Stockmar paints and Waldorf art supplies from Bella Luna Toys, but aren’t quite sure how to use them.

Now, instead of trying to explain the technique over the phone, I can link to these illustrated instructions, which I hope that users new to the techniques will find helpful. (And SimpleHomeschool’s beautiful format makes it so pretty. Thanks, Jamie!)

If you’ve been curious to try wet-on-wet watercolor painting with your children, head on over to SimpleHomeschool and have a look! You can also print out the piece for future reference.

If you want to go deeper into the technique, or need more details, I highly recommend the book Painting With Children by Brunhild Muller which has many color examples different color combinations, and more ideas for “color stories” one can tell while painting.

Have you practiced wet-on-wet watercolor painting with your children? Send me your photos and I’ll post them on the blog! Have further questions? Leave them here, and I’ll do my best to answer them.
