Paint with Markers- Pine Tree Step by Step Tutorial

I’m all for free form, creative process art. In fact most of my lessons are very open ended.   But I also believe it’s good for kids to learn some basic tools or skills that they can then use in their own art in their own way.  This pine tree tutorial includes a few simple directed drawing steps plus the fun addition of color using the super simple (and not messy) paint with markers technique.
