Today at Camp Imaginators Aunty Reiko did the local tale Hatch which introduced the Doodlebugs to our local leatherback turtles and the story of their birth.
So when they came to me I wanted them to represent those baby turtles on the page! I directed them in drawing the turtles and they used watercolours to paint the beautiful seascape. For these tiny mites it's important to be prepared, so I had turtle back templates on hand so they could get the scale right and they drew the details in free hand. They also added the things we would see under the sea... which they were all very eager to suggest... "SEAWEED! ROCKS! PLANTS! FISH! CRABS! SHARKS!"... Well maybe not sharks :P It was a lot of fun :)
Take a look at the finished results.
Check out what they did at the Reading Garden as well!
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
