This Year's "Ish" Artwork

Here is a sample of this year's 2nd grade "Ish" artwork, inspired by the book "Ish" by Peter H. Reynolds. Some were finished with crayons, some with watercolors, and some with marker, but they all started the same way- drawing directly on the paper with sharpie. Why? So that the students have to let go of being perfect. If they make a mistake, they have to find a way to make it great. 
I love the balance of composition in this one!
This 2nd grader is obviously interested in cosmetics!

  1. Hi Katie, yep my favourites are the guitar and cosmetic queen too!

    And I like the direct marker philosophy, I'm going to embrace that in more of my lessons : )
