Paint
* never get more than you think youll need. you can always get more. waste is bad for everyone
* a quarters worth is a good amount
* find some scrap to mix colors on

Water
* barely cover the bottom of the container WHY?
* well, if you spill theres not much to clean up
* youre not going to accidentally use to much on your painting, especially using watercolor
* youre not wasting water

Brushes
*use the brush for the job
*small brushes are for details at the end
* big brushes are usually for large areas unless- there is the need for texture or marking of some type
* always clean your brush
* always make sure your brush has been cleaned before you use it

Painting
* painting is or can be messy, mind your space and manners
* dont play or get sloopy
* IF you MESS UP---WAIT FOR IT TO DRY AND PAINTOVER IT
* sometimes painting over something requires that you paint an opaque color such as white first.
* always lay flat to dry ( I want you to place your painting on top of your folder then lay your folder on the drying rack
Good Painting Practices

* respect your work and others work. meaning NEVER paint or mark or touch another persons painting!!!
NEVER put a wet piece on top of another wet piece

Finishing up

* listen for instructions
* dont crowd the sink
* one person per job, dump water, clean brushes, put away paint,
* put painting away first or as told WHEN TO DO SO!!!
