Color Theory Sea Turtles

In conjunction with their study of marine life, 2-3 students made observational paintings of sea turtles. Students began by drawing hexagons, incorporating them into shell patterns. Using reference materials, artists made drawings and mixed primary colors of tempera paint to complete the compositions.

The drawings are currently on display in the Klingenstein Library Gallery.
