In the Art Room - Koi Fish

This didn't turn out quite like I hoped, but my 3rd graders seemed to enjoy it!  We were studying recurring themes in different cultures' artworks.  We looked at the Koi/Carp fish in Japanese paintings and then tried to create our own versions.  I used steps for the drawing lesson found on smART Class.


  1. Very neat! I just posted on my blog about a koi fish project I did with my 6th graders :). Your students' drawings are wonderful. Beautiful work!

  2. Lovely compositions, full of movement - I really like the off-the-page positioning :)
