Experiments with water


Year 3 were learning about water. We experimented with using watercolour paint and different ways it might be applied or react with other things. The experiments were:

  1. We painted watercolour and laid cling film on it while still wet to create pattern
  2. We scattered salt over wet watercolour to create texture
  3. We blew coloured ink through straws to see the lines in made on the paper
  4. We cut drew with white wax crayon and painted over it with water colour to see what “Invisible drawings” showed up.


We then took our 4 experiments and cut and arranged these to create compositions.
