LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT I acknowledge, with deep respect, that I am gathered on Treaty 7 territory. I acknowledge the many First Nations, M├ętis and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for generations. I recognize the land as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on or are visiting.

Sunburst Watercolour Heart Painting


Valentine's is around the corner so here's a cute watercolour lesson to get kids refining their watercolour skills. I found the lesson HERE and let my Grade 7-9 students have free reign with it. The link provides really clear instructions. I modified the lesson by having a glitter or felt heart glued onto the center. 

Using heavy white paper, students taped off a border. Then drew converging lines in pencil to the center point. They painted in the sections using watercolours. 


Then glued on a glitter or felt heart. I found these at Dollarama. 



Remove the tape and voila!  I love the creative solutions my students came up with!
