Mixed Media Seahorse

By Kathybarbro @KathyBarbro
Mixed Media Seahorse This is my adapted Seahorse project for 1st graders, who were able to make a pretty frame for their art when their painting was finished. 
1. Students followed directions in my “How To Draw A Seahorse” post, but with a half sheet of watercolor paper instead of a full sheet. They also used plastic mesh under their seahorse when coloring with crayons to create some texture in the body.
2. Students colored in a “bubble” frame with oil pastels on a 9" x 12" sheet of black paper.
3. The painting was glued in the center with a glue stick. Pressing the final art under a heavy book for a day will smooth out any wrinkles.
