Shell Designs

"Super Shells" by Cody grade 5
Students composed the shells and arranged background patterns to highlight the shell shapes.

"Underwater Symphony"
by Rachel grade 5
In 5th grade we took a slightly different approach to the shell assignment. The students did the same observational drawingas the 6ht graders; however, I had them go over the lines in black sharpie ink. This was the first year for having complete sets of watercolor pencils, so I instructed them to draw with them dry and then using a damp brush we liquified the pigment and the colors blended beautifully.
