Seashell Butterflies

One of my favorite things to do is incorporate things I find in the natural world into art projects. As long as the items are no longer needed by the creatures that share our planet, I consider it a form of recycling! So please enjoy these sophisticated and delicate water color pictures of butterflies, made from seashells fluttering in the sunset. These were created by the Bridge class. Just beautiful.

About stephwheatley

Formerly from Britain, I have lived in the USA since 1989. My qualifications are in library science, but I've had a passion for all things artsy and crafty for as long as I can remember! I became the Primary Art Teacher at Shady Oak Christian School in 2009 and am thoroughly enjoying myself. I teach students at both Shady Oak Christian School and Shady Oak Primary School. It's wonderful to be able to share my passion at a place that believes in the importance of learning through creativity. Please check out the Shady Oak websites at and to learn more about these unique schools located in Richmond, TX.

    What a great idea to use seashells! They look almost Asian, I think, with the sunset colors and the tall blades of grass(?) looking like bamboo. Very pretty! Another great project, Mrs. Wheatley.
