Folk Art Fish

Second grade students loved this whole class collaboration project! Believe it or not, this was only a 1 day lesson! I used a power point to introduce the artist Karla Gerard.  Students analyzed her artwork and discussed folk art pieces.

I did a short demonstration on how to draw a fish.  Students used crayons and water color to add color to their fish.  While students were working on their own individual fish, I called groups over to a table to work on the background.  I tried different techniques with each class.  Some classes used the cool color tempera paints to paint water and other classes did a chalk-smeared background.  They created the bubbles with white paint and cup printing.  Check out second grades folk art murals below!
