How to Paint a School of Fish- Extension Tutorial

This is an extension tutorial based on the previous How to paint a rainbow fish tutorial and the template for the fish is in the downloads section.  It is very descriptive on how to draw and paint it.  My students love this tutorial because once they have tackled the first fish, the next few are very easy. Drawing the same fish a few times basically burns it into your memory.

Start by drawing a fish from the previous tutorial and repeat it as many times as you like on the same page. These are all the materials you will need:

Next, paint all the fish in watercolor and outline it with a black marker. I prefer black marker for this tutorial because the fish are smaller and it will look neater. It is very relaxing deciding on what colors to use and a good idea to paint each fish different colors. Fill in the background details and then you have a school of beautiful rainbow fish!
