Done, but Not Done!

This is my final learning post! In EDTC 300, we had to learn something independently using the online sources. This experience was engaging because we could all pick something different and of interest to us individually. When starting this learning project I didn’t think I was going to improve my watercolour painting skills so much. I am impressed with how far I have come in the last 2 months. I used sources such as YouTube and Pinterest to learn how to paint with watercolors. These sources wer […]

Painting a Little Bit of Everything!

This passed week I had lots of time for painting on my days off. This week my paintings don’t have a theme at all. I didn’t know what I should paint when I started.

My Seesaw Learning Portfolio!

This was a fantastic learning experience with seesaw! In my EDTC 300 Blog post I have went into more detail about how to use this platform! I created my own engagement activity, “Art Exploration” that could be used in a classroom for exploring watercolor paints! I made the activity very basic, but in the future in might try to be more creative. I might have to played around with the program more to see what else I can design! I created this particular activity to doc […]

Testing out Techniques

 I watched a YouTube video called Essential Watercolor for beginners: Techniques. I followed along and painted with the video and did all of the techniques demonstrated. This video was very easy to understand and follow. I started by taping my watercolor paper to work area so my paper didn’t curl up or move while I was painting. Then I taped square sections onto my paper, so each square was perfect and paint didn’t not run all over the place. I had all my supplies ready to go su […]
