I used this with 6th graders several years back. For a historical
reference I shared a picture of a fish by Richard Hunt (Discover Art 6, by
Davis Publications) done in the Northwest Coast, Native American style. We
studied their stylized line work which is usually painted on carved wooden
At the time, my sixers were a bouncy group and they really got into the
repetitive line/pattern design of this project. Even those whose lettering
skills were minimal produced a successful design. And because they each
had to draw their own fish outline, and create their own line/pattern
'filler,' each student's work was unique.
Hope this helps.
