I am so excited to have completed this lesson for the first time. Last spring, I found several examples online and have been hoping that mine would come out well for my 3rd graders this school year. Thank you to Manuales and Use Your Colored Pencils for the inspiration.We spent some time early in the lesson visualizing ourselves underwater and what happens to our bodies as we swim and float. We looked at photos of swimmers and divers to help us with the details. We used crayon for most of the color, then washed over the picture with cool color watercolors. We also made a frame with stamped bubbles. I just love these and they were so much fun to make!
