Sea Shells on the Seashore Art Box
Most of us associate the beach with holidays and summer fun. And the beauty of sea shells has been appreciated for thousands of years! This art box is inspired by many artists who also love the seashore and have depicted the ocean, sun, sand and shells in their artwork. Projects vary from making cardboard flip-flops to painting surreal shells; from creating rippling wave collages to imagining multi-media sandy beach scenes: and from making your very own kinetic sand to land art!
This art box includes a project inspired by Georgia O'Keeffe, why not add the artists' book? Click here to find out more.
What is inside the Sea Shells on the Seashore Box?
Next time you find one, hold a seashell to your ear and listen for whispers from an underwater world! Shells connect us to the ocean, whose depths remain largely unexplored. We are captivated by their colours, their twisting forms, and by the hidden creatures we sometimes find inside them.
And many artists have placed sea shells in their natural landscape, on the seashore, where land and sea meet and the artist can play with the ever-changing light. Such artists often like to work “en plein air” (ie, outdoors), taking their easels and canvases onto the beach itself!
