Koi Fish, Japanese Scrolls, and Sumi-e Painting

These were created by my 3rd grade students. Every year I do a huge untit with my 3rd grade kiddos on different art in cultures around the world. These were inspired by the  kakemono "hanging", more commonly referred to as a kakejiku"hung scroll", is a Japanese scroll painting or calligraphy mounted usually with silk fabric edges on a flexible backing, so that it can be rolled for storage. Students discussed a variety of topics and then created their own scrolls using india ink, sharpie, and watercolor paints. We used clothes pins to help make these scrolls.
