As the girls' fascination for the coral reef aquarium grew, we thought it would be fun to make an aquarium of our own. The pre-k classes joined together to work on an elaborate collaborative project that now hangs in the activity center! It is beautiful! It was a very involved process, involving many steps and lots of industrious little girls! They learned to work together AND to be patient and persistent in the process! We are so proud of them! AND proud of their AMAZING masterpiece!
CREATING THE CANVAS:
Step 1 - The girls painted the canvas with the colors of the sea...blues and greens and white.
Step 2 - The girls repainted the canvas with those same colors...
Step 3 - The girls added ANOTHER layer of color painting shapes and lines...
Steps 4 and 5 - The girls added texture with lots of glue, rocks, gems, shells, and glitter...
The canvases are ALMOST complete! How "bout some fish?!? We added another intricate and multi-step process to add a little sea life to that beautiful water!
Stay tuned to see the beautiful sea life your girls created and to see another complicated process! Look at the beautiful work of your budding artists!
