Magical Seahorses - Grades 3-5

As you can tell, I am big on watercolor resists, I just love the effect and how wonderfully colorful these paintings turn out.   I thought of seahorses, such a beautiful magical little creature. 

First I handed out paper and pencils for them, and then drew the basic shape of a seahorse on the dry erase board.  I told the students that if they already have a creative artsy idea for their seahorse, then go ahead and draw that.  But if they need a little help with the basic shape, I am here to show them.   They made amazingly wonderful seahorses.  Outlined and embellished them in crayon, and then painted with watercolors.  Absolutely Beautiful!
