This was a great lesson about using contrasting colors (warm and cool) and being intentional when creating a composition. The students used their imagination and some resources (worksheet, books) to draw an underwater scene of plants and animals. We discussed how to create an interesting composition by having some parts go off the page and by overlapping some things. Next we talked about how magical art is! The students were encouraged to draw a few things with white and just see what would happen when paint was applied over. Also, they added a pinch of salt for some magnificent crystal effects! These make me want to take a vacation!
