2 ESSENTIAL QUESTION How can we use watercolor techniques to portray a particular habitat? State Standard: Life Science 2.3.F.1 - Explain that organisms can grow and survive in many very different habitats

3 OBJECTIVES Students will understand that earth supports many different habitats, each of which has distinct features and distinct plant and animal populations. Students will create a watercolor painting to depict one habitat (oceans/coral reefs, artic tundra, tropical rainforests, or savannas/grasslands) Students will use at least 2 watercolor techniques in their painting from the following: wet-on-dry, graded wash, lifting wet watercolor, or wax-resist

4 HABITAT Definition: An environment or area that is inhabit by a particular species of animal, plant or other type of organism It is made up of many physical factors: soil, water source, temperature/climate, and access to sunlight

5 OCEANS/CORAL REEFS Marine Habitats Coastal (coral reefs) or Open ocean (only 10% of marine species live here) Temperature is affected by currents, geographical location, weather and sunlight (for photosynthesis) Coral Reefs Warm temperatures (tropical) Plant life: coral, sea grass, sponges, algae Animals: shrimp, sea turtles, tropical fish, starfish, whitetip reef shark

6 ARCTIC TUNDRA Made up of freezing temperatures Ice, snow, and dry winds (permafrost- frozen soil) Inhabited by arctic wolves, caribou, brown bears, and the Musk Ox Plant life: Mosses, low-growing shrubs and grasses

7 GRASSLANDS/SAVANNAS Dry season during winter Cheetahs, lions and gazelles have developed the ability for speed to chase prey/run from predators Also home to zebras, giraffes and elephants Plants: Baobab tree, Elephant Grass, Bermuda Grass

8 TROPICAL RAINFOREST Humid/rain Has a canopy and forest floor (fertile soil) 50% of the Earth’s plants and animals reside here Spiders, anteaters, jaguars, frogs, sloths, toucans Strangler figs, Bengal Bamboo, Kapok Tree

9 MEDIA/MEDIUM Medium is a material used by an artist or designer to create a work Examples: Drawing, Painting, Photography, Sculpture Mixed Media: collage Multimedia: using more than one medium, visual art

10 MEDIUM Today we will be using Watercolor on Drawing paper (medium) using various watercolor techniques including crayon for wax resist with our subject Matter being a particular habitat

11 WATERCOLOR TECHNIQUES Wet-on-dry Using a wet brush, dipping it into watercolor, then painting Graded wash Beginning with a liberal amount of paint on a wet brush and then dabbing your brush (after initial paint goes on paper) on a paper towel and adding a little bit of water

12 WATERCOLOR TECHNIQUES Lifting wet watercolor Blot designs/shapes with tissue, sponge, or paper towels to suck up the wet paint Wax Resist Draw using color crayon of choice (usually white/clear) on paper, then paint over the wax with watercolor and the wax design will stay (resisting the watercolor)

13 JOHN JAMES AUDUBON French-American naturalist painter Studied American birds (ornithologist) and painted them in their natural habitats Attempted to paint and document all American birds (many life-sized paintings) Had great appreciation for wildlife and conservation efforts Media used: watercolor, oil paints, gouache, pencil and pastel sketches, and graphite Compiled The Birds of America

14 AUDUBON’S WORK “Snowy Owl” “Great Blue Heron”

15 EXAMPLES How can we use the medium, watercolor, on thick drawing paper, to portray a particular habitat?
