After using a day to paint different types of papers we added textures with forks, and other objects. The next class each student chose two sheets from the "community" papers we made to create waves. The ripped the sheets to make "whitecaps" and glued them down except for the top part of the wave so that they could slide in boats, islands, and sea life behind the waves. I originally planned on watercoloring the sky, but got excited about how they were turning out I forgot!
* I got this idea from School Arts magazine
