ART

I love exploring the rock pools at the beach. I get very excited if I spot a shore crab . They are usually a green-ish colour. It's important when you are rockpooling to leave everything as you found it - replace any rocks you've turned over, put back any animals and try not to damage the habitat. 

Today, I would like you to follow the online tutorial and draw a crab. Have fun.
