Painting in watercolors is an activity that many kids enjoy, but at the same time it is a bit challenging. There are many things to learn about watercolor painting. You need to know what kind of paper to use, how to mix your water colors to get the desired shade, how to keep your painting within the lines and not have your water colors run. Start out with some basic supplies, a simple set of water color paints and some inexpensive paper - or paint by numbers. Your students or your little artist will enjoy the exposure to a new medium and perhaps you will inspire the next great artist of our generation!
