2nd grade Seascape Collage

These seascape collages made by my 2nd graders are so texturally rich - what a fun way to build a seascape! We tried several different methods for the "sky" paper, my favorite being the texture rubbings with watercolor resist. All the painted paper for this project was made on the first day. On the second day, we chopped up the "ocean" paper and glued it into place. We also made the hulls of the boats using neutral colored paper, making sure to include a small, medium and large size to convey depth. On the third day, we made the sails, added some clouds and a sun all cut from paper. Pretty wonderful I think!
