Wet-On-Wet Watercolor Painting

In Waldorf schools, wet-on-wet watercolor painting is the chosen method for painting. The intent is to give young children an experience of color, not form. Because the wet paint is laid on wet paper, the colors flow, blending into one another in beautiful, unexpected ways. First the children experience the single three primary colors, then they work the various two color combinations: red/yellow, red/blue, and yellow/blue. The children get excited as they experience how secondary colors are formed when combining two colors. After experiencing the single colors, then two colors, five to six-year-olds can be introduced to painting with all three primary colors. Watercolor painting continues throughout the elementary school years. Students perform wet-on-wet watercolor painting weekly from first grade on. By the time they are in high school they are ready to tackle more classical and challenging fine art forms: charcoal drawing, veil painting, portraiture, and figurative sculpture.
