Lesson Description

We all know that fish can’t survive outside water. Can we change that? Yes, we can! Let’s create Koi Fish artwork using salt and paper (haha)!

In this class, your child will learn how to create koi fish artwork using salt. They will begin their artwork by sketching the koi fish with a pencil. Then, they will learn how to carefully apply glue on the inside of the koi fish sketch. They will even be taught how to even out the glue using a paint brush. Then, they will learn how to sprinkle salt on the glue. They will understand how to cover the sketch with salt. They will be taught how to dust the excess salt off their artwork. Then, they will learn how to paint the koi fish using different water colours.
