Koi Fish Drawings

Koi Fish In Art class, fourth and fifth graders have been studying Asian art. At the beginning of this project, the students learned about the significance of koi fish in Asian cultures (koi can represent friendship, love and strength). The students learned how to draw koi fish and created their own original koi artwork. They enhanced their artworks with other fish, lily pads and flowers, waves, and calligraphy stamps. The students then learned how to create their own chop, which is like the artists own personal stamp. Nice work!
