Lesson 7 Fish painting fun

I want to invite you in to see how your students are doing painting their fish.  They did not start with an outline, they painted with their brush straight on their rice paper.  This exercise develops their imagery process confidence.  Documenting what you know, and observe to know.  

They have the freedom to play with the color for the background.  They are commanding their personal expression in their paintings. 

Lesson 6 Godfish side view

We continued with our goldfish, this week we studied the sideview of the gold fish.  We will spend another week practice the flowy side stroke of the tail and fin.  Your students are having a great time painting away.  Challenged, yes.  But delightful and focused.
