Sea Life Paintings

For this project students will create imaginative underwater scenes. Students will first use markers and oil pastels to create fantastical patterned sea life. Next, students will use a variety of tissue paper to create oceans. Students will then use tempera paint and sand to create sea weed, bubbles and the ocean floor.
