Using Line and Color
First day we talked about different kinds of line (thin, thick, wavy, jagged, spiral, short). We talked about how line can create shapes and patterns. The students then drew their fish and filled the fish with as many different types of lines they could.
Then they added color using washable markers. Once the fish had color, they painted the fish using water to create a watercolor effect viola!
They picked out the background color (I cut the fish because we were short on time) then they pasted the fish onto the colored background.
Here are a few of the kinder fish they created.
They were so proud. A few of them asked if it was magic :)
