Magoo Paints a Fish Spiral
I found out recently that one of the teachers at Magoo's school was retiring. This is a teacher who has been very sweet and helpful to Magoo over the years, so I didn't want her to get away without letting her know how much we appreciated her.
Stealing an idea from Pinterest, Magoo painted a lovely batch of fish swimming in a spiral. (He's using watercolors, then pen & ink.)
Here's the finished product.
I think it came out great, and it looks pretty good framed, too. (Now I kinda don't want to give it away.)
This was such a great little project, I might have to work it into my schedule when I teach the pre-schoolers art at the West Hartford Art League this summer. And you can do it too with your own little ones - or big ones - as the case may be. Simply paint an oval with a tail. Paint a few more with different colors. Let them all dry. Get a black markers and draw faces and scales. Done!
