While the clay fish were drying students drew fish bowls. We had a discussion about what types of things we can find in fish bowls. They decided we might see mermaids, fish, crabs, hermit crabs, snorkelers, scuba divers, sharks, filters, and so much more. I was amazed by all of the things they came up with- kids are so creative at this age.
As a class we drew the shape of the fishbowl, the rock lining on the bottom of the bowl, and water line at the top of the bowl. After this step-by-step demonstration the students drew what ever type of sealife they wanted to include in their bowls. After drawing the bowls we used permanent marker to go over our pencil lines so that they did not smudge when we watercolored our pictures. The results of both the clay fish and fish bowl painting are beautiful and can be seen on our facebook fan page at w
