Virtual Refrigerator: Hiding Butterflies

I am so THANKFUL for our new homeschool ArtAchieve curriculum. This particular project came from the Entire Level II Bundle. There are so many amazing projects in this bundle. We worked on Hiding Butterflies over a 2-Day time period for a total of about 1 1/2 hours. I appreciate the cross-curricular activities on the website too. This particular art project explored symmetry and the concept of camouflage. Alyssa worked on top of a garbage bag to protect the surface, because I didn't have a table cover. We taped the watercolor paper to a cardboard cake board instead of on a paint board. It worked perfectly and saved us money on art supplies. A ruler may be needed to create a line of symmetry.

What do you think? Doesn't this project look fun?
 I am THOROUGHLY impressed with the program and its features. 

If you like this Art project then you could easily add it to any Literature, Science, or Math curriculum related to butterflies, camouflage, or symmetry for only $5.00. The website also contains a helpful list of literature to read. 

I will add this link to the Virtual Refrigerator Linky. Here is a link to my ArtAchieve review if you'd like to read more about our other experiences with this program. We just can't get enough of it.

Have a great week and see you soon. Thank you for visiting A Learning Journey!
