This program will incorporate a variety of marine life into your own picture of an underwater community. Colored pencils, markers and watercolor paints will be supplied to complete your artwork. Mixed Media painting techniques will be demonstrated, so no prior experience is required. Reference pictures and easy to follow drawing instructions will be provided for an assortment of fish, corals, shorebirds, etcetera from the marine ecosystems described below: Intertidal zones, where the ocean meets the land: clams, crabs, sea stars, small fish and shorebirds; can be rocky or sandy. Coral Reefs, found in warm shallow waters: reef fish, urchins, octopus, and corals. Estuaries, where freshwater streams or rivers merge with the ocean: seaweeds, marsh grasses, oysters, crabs, and waterfowl.
