After designing new beach towels, my youngest artists were eager to create an underwater scene. They drew with Crayola markers on 9″ x 24″ paper. We started with a flowing line of sand at the bottom, then added a long, flowing line for the water. I demonstrated how to draw
seaweed and a crab. Students referred to drawing books for pictures of jellyfish, turtles, shells, fish, etc. Students were asked to fill the space with a variety of objects, add interesting details, and use their best lines. This idea came from another wonderful blog. Please let me know if you are the author.
