How to Make a Watercolor Bunny Painting!

Artists of Any Age Can Make This Cool Art!

We're feeling inspired by the beautiful colors of Springtime and, since Easter is coming up, we thought we'd do a cool bunny painting! This is a super fun Springtime themed project where we'll learn about symmetry and how to work with watercolors and pencil.


What You'll Need
