In art at MSKC, we are looking forward to summer! Thinking about our favorite summer activities, we drew seascapes. We learned that a seascape is a work of art that shows all things found at the beach or under the sea. Students drew a horizon line and below the horizon line added in all things that we would find under the sea. Over the horizon line, they drew sandcastles and a sky. Then we designed a pair of sunglasses. In the lens of the sunglasses, students drew their favorite summer activities, including swimming and eating ice cream. We are currently drawing a row of beach houses and their reflection in the water, learning that when sun hits the water it makes a mirror image or a reflection.
