As a small part of a learning expedition on water, a sixth grade student from the Shutesbury Elementary School, in Shutesbury, Massachusetts, created an introductory book about watercolor art for young readers. The class was involved in a study of watercolor as a medium, and this project was a culminating product from that study.
The book is very simple and limited in scope, but has an elegant layout and features attractive watercolor illustrations
The original book is 6 by 6 inches.
