Tin Foil Turtles

Fifth grade artists examined the color wheel, identifying the cool color family and its members, blue, green, and violet. The student artists experimented with the watercolor techniques of a wash, salting, wet-on-wet, and controlled splatter to create an underwater background. Students then created an ocean inhabitant using metal engraving techniques and adding elements of pattern and design.

The student identified and visually communicated sources of ideas through a historical and cultural study, and examination of nature for their artwork subject matter. Students were able to demonstrate the way art materials are used to create different styles through the wash, salting, controlled splatter, and wet-on-wet painting techniques.
