Painting Jelly Fish
The graceful jelly fish with long flowing tenacles can be
hard to duplicate in art.
Today we discovered a way.
We started with a sponge to create the body of the jellyfish, then
using an eye dropper we dipped paint and allowed it to run down
Using our tabletop pizza box easels made it easier to see the effects quickly.
The artist of this piece painted the paper with the dark blue
first and then created the jellyfish.
The orange pops off the dark painted paper.
A few other finished pieces of art.
And I caught this child sending a photo of her artwork and a note
to her mom using her caregiver’s phone.
A clever way to encourage literacy and strengthen
the bond between child and a working parent.
