How to celebrate easter painting dogwood in watercolor

Today I share a very simple, easy, but beautiful project that can be done with children, young children and the elderly for this Lent. This Easy Holy Week Watercolor Art project is made even easier with the printable crucifix I’ve made. I made a project very similar to last year’s (see here), but as it required a hand drawn crucifix as a first step, I decided to go back to that project and make it a lot easier.

So first of all, download a free printable crucifix to use in this project.

Materials for this project and MANY other Catholic projects can be found inCatholic digital family library. To instantly log in and join a thriving community of over 10,000 Catholic parents, simply enter your email address.

Here is a breakdown of how to complete this project. After downloading the crucifix images, print them on cardboard paper.

First, if you do this at home, the printer ink will stain when you apply a watercolor on it, so you need to seal it. The easiest way to do this is to paint it with a pastel. Ho fatto mia sorella e i suoi figli. Some of us used a black crayon (above) and others used a light crayon. If you use a clear crayon it can add a fresh look to paint roughly beyond the edges of the crucifix.

So take the watercolors and start painting. He uses a large brush and copious paint, painting just above the crucifix.

Cover the entire page with color, then use a little more water to blend the colors (not too much) after you finish painting.

Easter tips for watercolors and surprises

We only painted with the base colors (red, yellow and blue) to encourage mixing and experimenting with colors. You can use multiple primary colors if you wish. Learn more about working with watercolors in wet-on-wet watercolor paint.

Making patterns on an Easter egg template with colored pencils and crayons creates colorful patterns that your child will be able to see before painting with watercolors. Drawing only with white makes drawings difficult to see before painting.

You can see my daughter’s experiment with colored crayons and watercolors in the photo below.

When children use watercolors to paint an area painted with white crayons (or oil pastels), they are surprised to see drawings appear, even though they know there is art there. It’s magic… Invite the kids to experiment and have fun!

We like to use white oil pastels because we like the way they act as a watercolor resisthiste medium. Experiment with resisthisti watercolor materials to find out which one you like best!

Wet on wet watercolor Easter surprise art

The second way to create a watercolor Easter art surprise is to use the wet-on-wet watercolor technique. For best results, use only two primary colors for each egg and see surprisecolor appears!

thissurpriseit is revealed when children discover the magical third secondary color, which is created when two primary colors are mixed.

Malowanie akwarelami w this sposób pozwala dzieciom doświadczyć, że niebieski i żółty tworzą zieleń, czerwony i żółty tworzą pomarańcz, a czerwony i niebieski tworzą fiolet. For example, my daughter used yellow and blue to paint the egg pictured below.

You could also call this type of Easter art color mixing Easter art, but I think “surprise” is more fun for the little ones.

Besides, who would want to spoil the surprise by telling children that they will be doing color mixing? Shhh… it’ll be our little secret.

Hang the finished wreath

Wrap decorative ribbon around the top of the wreath and hang it on the front door (photo 1).Advice: If your door has enough space at the top, you can simply attach the ends of the ribbon to the top of the door with a flat pin (photo 2). Display your finished wreath on a covered porch or indoors for a bouncy accent you can show off year after year (photo 3).
