Sea Turtles

These adorable sea turtles were created by our PreK and Kinder artists in the style of Eric Carle. Eric Carle is a children's book author and artist famous for his painted cut out images. First, we began by creating two paintings: one blue and one green. I explained to the students that the blue would be water and the green would be a turtle. Once the painting was complete, students took a comb and scraped lines into the paint. The blue should be curvy lines like the waves in the ocean, the green lines could be any kind of line that makes you think of a turtle. Next, we cut up the green paper to make turtles and added some black lines for eyes and a shell. For a final touch, students could use some extra painted paper to create some bubbles.
