Jellyfish make a very nice subject for a variety of artworks. Their translucence and indiscriminate form give freedom to those who are more painterly with their brush while at the same time giving something to those learners who need a subject to sketch.
I found this project on the deep space sparkle website. It uses a variety of media which is always nice and results in a beautiful artwork! The grade 3s did it on A3 paper. They began by making a gradient from black, through purple, Blue or red, to white. They then took a white crayon and drew the outlines of some jellyfish. Taking a black crayon they added in some seaweed before using chalk pastel to add some colour to their jelly’s. This they smudged to give them their translucent look. The last step was to add other fish and sea life using small pieces of coloured paper.
The learners really enjoyed this project and it was fairly simple to execute! The resulting artwork looked beautiful as well!
