Asian art unit : watercolor koi

When students were done with their paper cuts they learned how to draw a koi from a step by step guided drawing lesson. After drawing one, two or three koi students went over their lines with black crayon or oil pastel. Finally students used watercolor to make vibrant works of art. Some students dug the salt out of the student supply cabinet to give a special effect to their water.


  1. What wonderful watercolors! Have to file this one away to use! Thanks for sharing!

  2. These are beautiful! The colors are so vibrant. What kind of watercolors did you use?

  3. Our school distric provides us with Prang watercolors. I am usually quiet happy with them except the black is rather blue-ish.
