Under the Sea with Picasso and Me- Turtles and Tints
2nd grade students where introduced to painting with sponges. They used a circle shape sponge then painted on construction paper to give the illusion of the outer shell of the turtle. Students were also introduced to tints and shades. They loved the various shades the paint and sponge made.
Day 1 -We painted paper with sponges and various shades of green paint.
Supplies 12 x 12 green construction paper and 6 x 12 green construction paper
Day 2 Students used tracers for the turtle to get the shapes of the head, shell, and flippers. Cut the shapes and assembled the turtle.
Students then added eyes and used oil pastels to outline the circles on the shell. lastly they painted with glitter paint to give the sparkle of the shell.
As you can see I separated the oil pastels -all various shades of green were used. Students will be creating sea murals for the various sea life creatures. Stay tuned more to come!
