Kindergarten: Oil Resist Jellyfish

All of the grades are learning about lines with different projects.  As one of the last lessons for this unit, jellyfish tentacles were an appropriate inspiration I thought. Students pretended their arms were tentacles and we wiggled our arms in slow syrupy motions before we started drawing. They had done two previous lessons on Line so they were getting pretty good at drawing wavy and loopy lines. The jellyfish was drawn with oil pastels and painted over with liquid watercolor. They mixed in a little black  so that the water would begin dark and gradually get lighter towards the top.
