Coming back from a week at the beach, we can't help but have ocean, fish and sand on our minds. Here is our first beach related project we did this week. On an 18x24 white piece of paper, folded in half, I drew a fish with a sharpie marker. I cut the fish out (giving you two fish) and we got busy coloring all over it with markers.
Then we taped the edges leaving a small slit at the bottom where we stuffed it with tissue paper.
Afterwards we taped it shut and we swam our fish all over the house!
Wife, Mom, Artist and Education Coordinator at City Arts Center. I believe art is a child's first written language. They have a creative spirit and imagination others tend to lose as they grow up. Many famous artists have tried to duplicate the way children paint and draw knowing that children have a true artistic bravery, unafraid and unabashed. I have the wonderful opportunity to share art with children and watch this process unfold. It truly is magical.
