Viking Ships, 3rd Grade

This week I have had my third graders create these really fun Viking Ships. Students first drew in pencil and then outlined everything with black crayon. I then had my students use liquid watercolors to paint their drawings. I even handed out gold and copper watercolor paint for my students to use.
Overall, I think these boats turned out wonderful. This was the first time I have ever used the metalic watercolor paints, and I really love them. I am sure I will find many uses for this paint in the future.


  1. Your students did a wonderful job using a variety of lines. The third ship is my favorite. The colors are beautiful too.
