Re: Underwater artist?
- Thank you for that suggestion.. Her artwork is GORGEOUS! love it. I couldn't find your marine watercolor pictures. I was able to find the lower school gallery but couldn't find those pictures. I have to ask you though, how did you create those magnificent city collage murals? It looks like cut paper? Did you paint the backgrounds? What are they mounted on? How did you introduce the lesson?

I wrote to her to get permission to use her work and she was very nice to grant us the use of her work for in school viewings. I have my 3rd graders do marine life paintings each year using her work as an example. I have tons of photos of marine life for them to incorporate into their own compositions. In fact, COMPOSITION is the name of the game. Elements and Principals city!!!! Grouping for unity, repetition and harmony, pattern, diagonal placement of fish to create movement. Creating a school of fish that lead your eye through a visual path in your work, variety of size, overlapping, the list goes on and on with this. I have examples of 3rd grade marine life paintings on our website.
