Draw a Simple Seahorse

Eric Carle’s wonderful book is a great read before for learning how to draw a simple seahorse. Perfect for students learning about sea creatures.

This project has been on my keeper list for years now, and I even have a previous tutorial I will add below. Pictured here is the plastic embroidery mesh panels that I often use to not only add texture, but to hold wet paintings after watercolor washes have been applied. You can find them for less than $1 at most Jo-Ann’s stores.
