Sea Stories

Bennett Elementary 5th grade create mixed media paints inspired by myths and stories.

November 18 – December 31, 2017

Reception: Saturday, November 18, 4-6 PM


The students of Bennett Elementary began this project by looking at the print Fish Eat Fish by Nahum Tschacbasov and then discussed, myth story and fantasy in art. We then painted underwater scenes with light sources as back rounds.  Using ink and brush on paper, the students created creature combinations (squid sharks for example) that would live in the scenes they painted.

The final step was coloring the creatures with color pencil, collaging them on to the paintings and then titling the works. This project would not be possible without the dedication and creativity of Bennett Art teacher Roberta Ziemba who makes every collaboration an adventure.
