This seascape project takes anywhere between 2 to 3 class periods based on the way you break it up. The kids had a great time learning how to "scoop and swoop" to make our ocean water using non-permanent flair tip pens. Turquoise and blue tempera cakes make the painting portion easy to accomplish. The sailboat(s) are made first by drawing and then cut and glued onto the ocean. The bright suns were also added using the collage method. Our final mixed-media paintings are 8x10 and so charming!
