My K-2nd graders created these pieces with acrylic painted seascapes and cut out dolphins and seals done with Sharpie and gray marker. I used the book "let's draw cute animals" by Sachiko Umoto. The step by step animal drawings are sweet and simple for my younger students to follow. I loved hearing all the children's seal and dolphin sighting stories. I think they did a great job with their pieces; they make me smile.
On a side note, my beloved Picnik is closing shop in a couple months. I do love a virtual mat and frame to showcase the children's artwork. Any thoughts on alternatives: Fotoflexer, Pixler, Picasa....?
