Oh how I love these glorious Koi paintings by my fourth grade artists!
They learned that the Japanese Koi, or carp, is a much loved fish in Japan and is a symbol of strength and perseverance in the Japanese culture. After a quick painting demonstration, they painted their koi with India ink on large sheets of paper. The room was absolutely silent as everyone concentrated on their paintings.
Can’t wait to see the finished pieces after we add color!
