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!
