The second graders looked at the work of Hockney and Woods, and created a drawing using hills as the foreground.  Each hill had to have a different line design or pattern.  They could add whatever details they wanted in the distance on the horizon line.  After tracing all the lines with a sharpie (which was a lotta work), students sprayed their paper with water, and laid tissue paper on top.  The tissue bled onto the picture, leaving a delightful watercolor effect.  I encouraged students to use hot colors on one side, and cool on another, but that wasn't so easy, when the colors began to bleed.  I think they turned out great, and will have to post some more as they get finished.
