4th and 5th Grade Lighthouses
My 4th and 5th grade students have been working on lighthouse art. They drew the lighthouse, land, and water with crayons, and then used a choice of watercolors or watercolor pencils for the sky. Some students also used a light watercolor wash over their ocean to fill in white spots. I didn't work as much art history into this lesson as I would have liked (anyone know of a famous artist who painted lighthouses?), but we hit a lot of elements and principles of art on this project!
