4th grade - watercolor painting

The forth grade classes have begun a watercolor op art assignment. Each student created two copies of a landscape and added elements to each picture to make them starkly different from each other.

We are currently in step 2, which is to watercolor paint both images. Each image should have a strongly different color scheme from each other to make as big a contrast as possible.

After we finish painting sometime next week, we will number and slice up each image and glue them alternately onto a backing, then accordion fold it. Finally, we will glue the accordion onto a final backing to stiffen it and freeze the dual image in place. The final project should look something like the pictures with this blog entry...only a whole lot better, of course!
