Summer Vacation is upon us! As our last art project of the year, my students drew and coloured sandcastles. The drawing was done step by step. The first line was the sandy horizon line on the bottom of the page. In the next steps, students drew their castles from the bottom up. They chose how they would like to tower their castles. Then, they added details like doors and windows. Student then drew the line behind their castles where the sky and water meet. Using a dark brown pastles, students outlined the shapes in their castle. Next, they coloured the rest of their castle light brown. To give the impression of light, students added white to the middle parts of the shapes in their castle. Dark blue was added for the water and light blue for the sky. Some student added white clouds and waves.
