Take a deep dive of discovery into the underwater world of the ocean! In this workshop, we explore sea creatures big and small, such as seahorses, jellyfish, sharks, and whales. Do fish really sleep with their eyes open? How many species of whales can we find? Which type of crab carries his house on his back? During this fun and immersive course, we answer these questions while reading ocean-themed stories that enliven our imaginations and inspire amazing underwater artworks to take home. Artistic projects include detailed ceramic seahorses, oversized jellyfish, papier mâché starfish, deep sea watercolor collages, and more!
