Please Don't Eat the Artwork


Me, Under the Sea


This project is loosely based on this


When I saw this book I just knew I had to do a project inspired by under the sea!


The story is an illustrated version of one of my favorite Beatles songs. 🙂

I also recently came across this awesome 2nd grade artwork by yours truly:


So I figured this could be a cool technique for my first graders to use! We began by reading the story and practicing drawing ourselves swimming. We transferred out sketches to big paper and used crayons to color everything in. Then we created a resist by painting blue liquid watercolor on top.


The last step was to outline shaped with oil pastels or Sharpie markers. This really made everything pop!
