Sea turtles are among our favorite animals around here.
We’ve read about sea turtles, watched sea turtle videos, and even searched for sea turtle nests on vacation. One of our favorite sea turtle projects was creating sea turtle art!
Create Sea Turtle Art
Turtle shells are amazing. They come in so many intricate designs and patterns – the perfect theme for an art project! This sea turtle art project combines 2 different types of media, drawing and the new zentangle art form.
Did you notice what happened? The wax in the crayons resisted the watercolor, so the color of the crayon drawing didn’t change. Where there was blank paper with no crayon, the watercolor adhered to the paper. This is called watercolor resist art. The kids love combining art media. It creates a beautiful effect.
Reptile and Turtle Studies
This sea turtle art would be a great edition to a reptile or turtle unit study. Need study ideas?
