Doodle Fish

Art Project Girl found a great page in an old art book that had a simple doodle drawing of fish, and I'm grateful she shared it hereSimple always grabs my attention!

Step 1: Loopy doodle ( I told the students no more than 8 loops on the page....you know what would've happened without the limit.)



Step 2:  Add tails and face, then color.



Here are the "Doodle Fish" created by 4th graders.

Thank you for reminding me of this! I did it today! We made clay fish then a student knocked over the box with the fish in it and a few broke, so I couldn't have them paint their fish today. This was a great lesson to pull out of my back pocket on a Frantic Friday Afternoon at 2:00!

I love the doodle fish! My thirds did doodles with warm and cool colors before the holidays but i love the idea of turning the doodles into creatures or objects! Thanks for the inspiration!
