Exploring the Colors of the Ocean
As part of our continuing research about the ocean for our eventual background project, we took time today to explore the ocean's colors. Since there isn’t enough time in the day to visit and observe the colors in the actual ocean, we made do with the second best option: watercolor. Using materials that we are well familiar with, Rainey A explored the colors and motion of the water by dripping, dropping and brushing the water over textured paper.
As the exploration continued, some friends became enamored with the movement of the paint on the page. For others the experience reminded them of times when they had visited the beach.
Now that the our oceans have dried, we will have an opportunity later in the week to layer on some texture and detail.
Today we had our second day of the mystery reader series! We wondered all day who it could be!
Elle: Maybe it could be my Nona and my mom!
Jack: Remember when it was my mom!
George: I think it's going to be my mom!
In the end it turned out to be Laura and Stephen Rodriguez! Big thanks to the both of them for sharing three wonderful stories about many animals real and imaginary! If you haven’t signed up yet, please do! We would love to have you!
