We finished up our Peruvian Weavings and Incorporations and have moved on to Asia. Our concentration is on Koi fish and their symbolism. Students first started with a wet on wet cool colored watercolor background. Next we practiced drawing koi fish and eventually worked our way up to drawing 2 fish with one of them turning to transfer onto our foam etching plate. We had a very messy fun time printing our fish all over our watercolor backgrounds and then enhancing them with warm colored pencils and at least one symbol.
The other project we are working on is a one-point perspective glue pastel drawing of Russian Onion Domes. Students had to have at least one building on each side of the road and one at the top of the road. This is a hard concept but we did great!
