It is so easy to make watercolor art with markers. In fact, it’s one of my son’s favorite ways to paint without painting.
You only need three supplies for this simple craft, and your child’s imagination is the limit. They get to create a drawing, then transform it into gorgeous art with science.
Make Watercolor Art With Markers
Here’s what you need to make watercolor art with markers:
- Watercolor paper
- Washable markers
- Spray bottle with water inside
Allow your child to draw on the watercolor paper using the markers. Any design works — scribbles, shades of solid colors. We found that creating colors close together made more colorful watercolor art than elaborate designs.
Once your marker drawing is done, lay the paper on a flat surface and spray with water. Allow to sit and dry, watching the colors run as your new artwork is created!
