I don't know who is more excited about this project--middle school artists or me. Over the summer I saw a video about underwater coral and it's fluorescent colors. I saved the video thinking I wanted to incorporate it into a lesson somehow. Later, while cleaning out my son's closet, I found black lights. AND...here are the results. Middle School artists used fluorescent paint and glitter to create their own underwater coral paintings. When the paintings were finished we covered the window, cut out the lights, turned on the black lights, and admired the work. Here are a few of their paintings. For more info on this lesson click here. To see all the paintings visit our Artsonia online art gallery.
