In our first workbook we looked at creating art in the style of Eric Carle. Here our some wonderful examples of what you created!

Look at these beautiful paintings. They are really easy to do but the end result is fantastic! This is a Science lesson and an Art lesson too. The method used is called resistance. Here are the steps you need to follow...
1. Use WAX crayons to draw your under the sea creatures. You could add other things too, such as a treasure chest, a submarine, a mermaid or some seaweed. Whatever you would like to see if you travelled under the sea! Make sure you use WAX crayons - chalk or coloured pencil won't work.
2. Use watery blue paint to paint over the top of your picture. You will need plenty of water on your brush and just a little bit of paint. You create a blue 'wash' by painting all over the paper, even on top of your crayon drawings. This is where the Science happens! The wax in the crayons resists the water so the paint can't stick! So your crayon pictures will still show through.
