Last week the theme for our lessons was The Ocean. In art class we took dried seaweed, collected from the rocks on the seashore, and glued it onto special ‘under the sea paper’. Then we took small shells, collected from the beach at Strandhill, and glued them on too. We each chose a fish or a shipwreck to paint and, when they had dried, added coloured match sticks, pipe-cleaners, bits of shiny card and glitter to make them sparkle like real fish. Finally we cut our fish out and stuck them onto the paper to complete our ‘Under the Sea’ collage!
