Virtual Refrigerator: Shark Week!

My daughter's interest in sharks has increased since the announcement of Shark Week. Alyssa has been learning about sharks using the videos available through Discovery Education and by reading numerous books on the topic. One of her art projects this week was to use oil pastels (instead of chalk pastels) to create a shark in the ocean. I love how she added in other ocean animals and plants.
Artist: Alyssa
Age:6 1/2
Subject: Sharks
Title: Out for a Swim
She utilized the step-by-step drawings for the starfish and shark from her Draw Write Now (Book 6) and the shark art tutorial from Southern HodgePodge as guides.

I will link this post up at The Virtual Refrigerator. What art project will YOU share this week? I can't wait to see it. Please feel free to leave a link to your post in the comments section.

Thank you for visiting A Learning Journey!


  1. Well done Alyssa that's beautiful. You are featured at the Virtual Fridge this week :)

  2. Thank you Chareen! I will let her know. She'll be excited to find out her art work was featured. She's loving those oil pastels. I can't wait to see what she decide to draw next. They are a little messy but fun!

    1. :) Looking forward to seeing more of her drawings too
