School is back in session and the students were eager to return to the art room. What could be better than remembering the lazy days of summer with a beach inspired painting!
Students first had to divide their paper into two. One half was painted yellow to represent the beach and the other half was painted blue to represent the ocean. During this process, students were shown how to blend colors to give their paintings depth and texture.
Now came the fun part! Students painted their feet with brown paint. Plenty of laughter ensued as they experienced the tickling sensation of the paintbrush on their skin. Once their feet were covered in paint they carefully placed each foot on the beach half of their painting.
The final step was to glue a few shells on their painting. When I look at these pictures I can imagine hearing the sound of the waves, the smell of the ocean and the feel of the sand between my toes. Here is a sampling of some of the pictures.
