Kindergarten students listened to the story "I'm the Best Artist in the Ocean", by Kevin Sherry. We then looked at photographs of giant squid, and then students created these colorful versions using a step-by-step method. They traced their pencil lines with oil pastels, and added some fun sea creatures in the background using colored oil pastels. Then students painted with tempera cakes. *They went a little nuts with this step, but I let it roll and they turned out amazingly!
