Yupo



We've had a lot of fun saying "Yupo", and fifth grade really nailed laying down textures on the first day. The second stage of using watercolors on Yupo was more challenging. Very quickly, I found that controlling the water was the number one issue for students. Secondly, finding images within the watercolors required a lot of 1:1 brainstorming. The project took some unexpected turns, but the student discussions of what they were experiencing with the media validated the effort. Elliot Eisner summarizes the 10 lessons the art teach, and this lesson seemed to touch on many of them.
