Here are some watercolor paintings that my third graders did in September. This is by far one of my favorite lessons that we did this year! I found the idea on Artsonia in the lesson ideas section. I don't remember the exact name of the lesson and couldn't find it again when I looked, so sorry , I couldn't link it to that exact lesson. If it is your lesson, please let me know so I can give you credit! If I remember correctly, I believe it was a lesson for middle school and I adapted it to fit the needs and objectives for my third graders. The students loved the lesson and it was a great kick-off for the school year! We studied several different cubist paintings and pictures of sea life before getting started. I drew up drawing directions for making many different types of fish and sea life. We also used the ocean drawing books in the art room for ideas. Enjoy!
