Watercolor Terrarium

This project can be modified by drawing the jar as a simple silhouette or with dimensional ovals as shown.
1. I cut jar templates from letter-size chip board and gave one to each student. I had them trace the jar in pencil on a 9" x 12" paper.
2. Limit the early crayon color selection to minimize mistakes. Students traced the jar in blue and drew a ground line in green. Then the plants were drawn above the ground, and roots were drawn in white below. I found that going straight to crayon worked fine. Sometimes drawing in pencil and then tracing slows the process down. Lastly, flowers were added to the plants. Emphasize that the coloring needs to be heavy so they should press hard throughout.
3. I distributed watercolor paints and had the students use different colors for the ground, the jar and the background.
