Watercolor Resistance

This Watercolor Resistance art project is so fun and easy to do! I taught this class back when I was working with adults with intellectual disabilities. It’s exciting to draw out a hidden image that gets revealed when the watercolor paint is applied!

I applied a tape border around everyone’s page to help it stay in place as the students painted. I also like the crisp, clean way a white border turns out! Painters tape or masking tape works best, but if you’re using a thin piece of paper it could rip when removed. If you’re using thin paper, “dull” the tape by sticking it to your clothes a few times before adhering. Next, draw any image or wording you desire. Then add watercolors! It’s that simple!

Enjoy!
