The Ethereal Jelly Fish
The Sunflowers class have been studying oceans and the creatures that inhabit them. They have been making a lot of fun ocean creature artwork. Their jellyfish are particularly striking.
Teacher Genny helped the children make paper mache domes on balloons, which they then painted and added wiggly eyes. Next, the kids attached a variety of yarn and ribbon pieces and spiral painted paper to create their wavy, trailing tentacles.
The students also did realistic drawings of jellyfish with crayons.
A third jellyfish project was to use oil pastels on paper covered with watercolors with some paint splatter and glitter glue for beautiful, sparkling dimension.
We think they all turned out as amazing and ethereal as the creatures they depict!
