Monhegan drawing/painting demos
I decided to change things up a bit this year for the Camp Kawanhee group out on the island by adding a more playful technique (hoping to keep the interest of some very active kids as they wait for their turn to go fishing with Captain Chris Cash.
Combining watercolor and oil pastel created interesting effects, and gave the kids confidence to just draw what they saw in front of them.
These 4 images are my 5 min demos, made at the beginning of each 2 hour session.
The campers' work can be found by surfing over to the camp's weekly newsletter website http://www.kawanhee.com/wigwam/ewigwam_issue_04.pdf
