K – gr 3 kids made paper roll penguins. Those quick finishers drew simple shapes to create the penguins. Once the drawings were complete the watercolor painting began. The background was filled in however the student chose.
The gr. 4 – 6 class started by gluing cut up shades of blue tissue paper to create and icy looking background. While this was drying they drew and painted the penguin onto watercolor paper with acrylic paint. Shading was added to the bellies of the penguins to give them some shape.
