Watercolor as Through the Eyes of the Author

This week, my students and I read excerpts from, “The Wind in the Willows”, trying to imagine what the author had pictured in his head.  While much of the time was spent experimenting with the paints and brush strokes, listening to the podcast definitely gave inspiration to both the kids as well as the adult painters.

On June 20, we will be painting with the book, “The Dragons Are Singing Tonight” as our inspiration.  Please join us if you love all things dragons, both modern and traditional.

To any of you painters of all ages, I want to ask a question.  Do podcasts stories or reading books ever inspire your work?
