MaryAnne says, “I always keep watercolors in our art supplies, but this was our first attempt at structured watercolor painting. Aquarelle makes watercolor painting accessible through the use of vividly colored liquid watercolors, a color mixing guide, and water resist guide lines on their projects.” Read the rest of her review at Mama Smiles.
Alicia says, “Liquid watercolors are so fun to use because you can adjust the colors to exact tone and intensity you want. I loved the idea of playing with liquid watercolors but I was a little nervous to try it on my own. Getting a set of liquid watercolors with no further instructions was a little nerve wracking for me. So when we received Aquarelle from Timberdoodle to review, I was SO excited!” Read her review at Learning Well.
Tifany says, “I found that the Aquarelle Monet kit was a great experience – educational, engaging, and we are left with some great art pieces that are ready for display.” Read the rest of her review at Ink Blots by TRD.
Karla says, ” this Aquarelle Monet watercolor kit includes everything you need to complete 3 paintings. But it’s not a kit in the sense that once you’ve completed it you’ll need to buy another one to do something similar. It’s really more of a mini course. Rebecca and I learned a lot about watercolor techniques just by reading the booklet and experimenting with the supplies provided.” Read the rest of her review at Roads to Everywhere.
Lacey says, “Watercolor is one of those artistic endeavors that both intimidates and frustrates me. The intimidation part stems from the fact that I find blending colors and controlling the amount of water vs. the amount of color difficult. That color wheel graphic just doesn’t live icy mind as vividly as it does in an artist’s mind. The frustrating part comes from the mess watercolor can cause. The drippy paintbrushes on the kitchen table. The soggy paper that sticks to the table if I forget to put something else down first. Some place to dry the art for a few […]
Melissa says, “Last year, Bookworm took an art class at one of our co-ops that he really enjoyed. This year, we dropped out of one co-op, and the other co-op didn’t offer art this year, so he was without a formal art program. We’ve adjusted and had him try a few different online art programs. But sometimes, he doesn’t want to follow along with instructions. Sometimes, he just wants to pull out the art supplies and be creative. Aquarelle Monet is perfect for this!” Read the rest of her review at Mom’s Plans.
Samantha says, “Aquarelle is a company that’s trying to take the guess work out of watercolor painting which is perfect for beginners. My fourth-grader has been wanting to learn water color for awhile and this was a great way to start since I have little knowledge when it comes to using watercolor paints.” Read the rest of her review at As They Grow Up.
Jennifer says, “Aquarelle Monet is included in Timberdoodle’s fourth grade curriculum kit, but even younger artists can achieve impressive results with this set. My six-year-old Abby decided she prefered pink waterlilies to white, but her finished painting still won her a blue ribbon in the East Texas State Fair.” Check out Abby’s prize-winning painting and the rest of Jennifer’s review at The Flanders Family Website.
Melissa says, “Aquarelle Monet is recommended for ages 8 and up but with a parent’s help in mixing the colors I think it would be okay to use with younger children. The great part is the paints are easily washable because we dripped some ourselves as we were mixing and had no problems at all with clean up. We would highly recommend this fun activity!” Read the rest of her review at Grace Christian Homeschool.
Meg says, “My family had a lot of fun with this kit. The quality of the supplies is great, the ease of use is great as well. We weren’t overburdened with complex lessons or instructions. With this kit you’re given the basics of how to use watercolors and sent off to explore the world of Claude Monet.” Read the rest of her review at Homeschool Gameschool.
