Have the kids start by doing a wash. To do this, saturate a thick paintbrush with water. Start with red, move up to orange, and finish out with yellow water colors. Have the kids put this aside and do sketch of an African scene. The simpler the better. Have them cut their scene out, and glue it onto their sunset wash after it dries!
