I have a recommendation for those who want to see a natural teacher and artist at work with children. Take a look at artforkidshub.com. I have use this website in my classes for a couple of years for one main reason. It shows an adult artist who is really accepting and supportive of a child’s attempt to draw the same thing he does. They have fun! You know, like art is supposed to be.
Anyway, we used his video in 5th grade this past month to create what I believe are some great blue jay drawings with a wet-on-wet watercolor background. We drew first in pencil, then outlined in sharpie and colored with pastels.
