As part of a school wide art exhibit, students are creating underwater themed artworks that will glow in the dark using black lights and fluorescent art materials. These axolotls were made with fluorescent tempera cakes.
Students learn about the axolotl, it's history, and it's unique ability to regenerate most of its body.
Students look at photographs and artwork of axolotls and draw an underwater scene, abstract or realistic.
Students learn to create value with the fluorescent cakes using added water for light areas, and adding multiple coats of paint to build darker areas.
