These were done by my first graders, ages 6 to 7. This project was a great way to teach children the significance of Memorial Day. Not only does this challenge their artistic abilities but it also integrates history as well.
I used a photograph as a reference and guided them through the entire sketching process. Once the base sketch was finished we started watercolor painting.
My Mantra: Strive to be the best me and improve a little every day. Be compassionate, especially to those who may not practice it. Continue to learn and love. Take a moment multiple times each day to breathe. Forgive myself and forgive others. Read books. Live what I preach. Accept others. And above all, laugh every single day. (P.S. I have an infatuation for horror and disturbing and dark true stories.)
