When I teach kids, I pretty teach them the same things I teach adult students, but with different materials. I loved our project, so I'll share with you. First they created a stamp, using sticky back foam on old pieces of matboard. Then they placed the stamp under a piece of regular drawing paper and did rubbings all over the paper (we used fabric oil pastels we had on hand). Then they painted the whole thing with different colors of watercolor, and the rubbings acted as a resist. Then using tempera paint in blue, they stamped over the whole thing with the stamp they'd created. Surface design for elementary school kids!
