About this Workshop


In this Workshop, Learners will explore classic watercolor painting techniques, while also discovering the effects that can be made by using household items to enhance their artwork. 

For this activity, we will go beyond using traditional art making techniques and experiment with new and different ways to create various textures, styles and appearances. While using salt with watercolors is a very common technique, and one that we will be using, I was curious to learn what else we could do to create different effects with the watercolors.  This led me to research various watercolor paint reactions and that is how this Workshop was born!  

The purpose of this activity is to learn to be experimental when making art, and the techniques we will be using incorporate both science and art concepts.  My hope is that this experiment teaches the Learners that it's both fun and exciting to try new things when making an artwork.  By exploring new ways to create art using watercolors, my goal is to inspire Learners to go on to be more imaginative in their creative approach for future art projects.

Haley NagorsenView Profile

Hi, my name is Haley!  One thing you should know about me is that I LOVE science and I believe it is the most fun subject.  What draws me to science is how you can experience hands-on learning of the subject. That's exactly why I decided to move from Wisconsin to Florida, so I could study marine science on land in a lab, and in the water by scuba diving.  My favorite sea life to find underwater are colorful sea slugs and decorator crabs, because of how small and unique they are.  It's like playing a big game of I Spy, trying to find these little creatures! 

When I'm not out exploring in the water you can find me in a studio planning S.T.E.A.M activities.  My main goal when teaching S.T.E.A.M based activities is to make science fun for young learners, and to encourage them to stay engaged with the sciences.  Math and science are challenging subjects, but when students are able approach them with an exciting attitude, then the intimidating stigma can diminish.  My hope is that my Learners have fond memories when they head into science class and can reminisce on certain experiments that drive their passion towards learning.  I can't wait to meet you fellow STEAMers and get creative with science!
