To get into the summer spirit, we looked at images of people swimming, surfing and lounging in, on, or near the water.
Students could choose the beach, a lake, or the pool. Their characters could be swimming or surfing.
We talked about foreground, middle ground, and background as well as how to show that they were sitting in or on an inner tube or how to show someone surfing or carrying an inner tube.
They used oil pastel for the people and tempera cake for the water.
