This artist added bubbles and plants with watercolor and crayon.
A lot of spiders and spiderwebs showed up under the sea today because Halloween is coming.
This is a lantern fish, surrounded by lots of spiders and their glittery webs.
I love this fish's jolly little hat and many stripes. I forgot to mention to the children that it would be easier to cut out a fish with a smooth outline.
Wow! I get inspired when I see colors like this! Who says the sea has to be blue or black?
It looks like spiders are spinning glittery webs from this fish!

Look at this beautiful rainbow weaving! We used 8 strings in the warp. That's a great number for making a striking pattern.
A mixture of patterns is fun, too!
Great work! Native American Bead Weaving

I encouraged the children to add a little animal. Here's a squirrel!
This child stuck on a bear she had made at school that day.
Some leaves seem to be falling from this tree.
I love how bright this whole picture is. I really do love colored backgrounds.
Next time....Bead Weaving with the older children!
