First and second graders created these watercolor seahorses. First, they water colored a 9 x 12 white sulphite paper with bright colors. After drying, a seahorse template was traced on the back, and cut out. This was adhered to the back ground paper, which was another white sulphite paper with green and blue watercolor wavy lines painted on it. Oil pastels and sequins were used for the final embellishments. And let’s not forget the eye! This project was done after reading Eric Carle’s book Mister Seahorse.
