Our Great Waves

6th graders have been studying different types of wavy and curved lines. Also with it being hurricane season, we re-created "The Great Wave", one of the most recognizable works of art from Japan. They also recently practiced drawing trees using spiral lines, so some students chose to have trees growing in their water. As always I was impressed with the variety of styles.

"The Great Wave" is seen often in pop culture (popular culture like t-shirts, advertising, etc) and reproduced in other type of artwork such as the sculptures below.

Below are examples of "The Great Wave" as seen in pop culture that I found online.
