Place turtle template on top and trace turtle outline onto the paper
Using scissors, cut out turtle shape (should have two turtles when complete)
Score the head, neck, flippers and shell with bone tool (see example)
Accordion fold the neck and flippers along the scored marks (as shown). This will give the illusion of the head and flippers emerging from underneath the shell.
Gently fold along the scored lines on the turtle’s back and head to give the turtle dimension
Place the turtle underside up on the foam sheet. With the ball stylus, gently rub to contour each of the turtle’s four flippers. If you feel adventurous, you can use the stylus to pattern the turtle’s shell.
Set your completed turtles aside.
Grab your background paper.
Turn paper on its backside and score three curved lines to resemble shoreline ripples.
Flip paper back over and crease along the scored lines.
Place your turtles in your desired location on your background.
Once satisfied, place a tiny dot of glue on each of the four flippers to adhere the turtles to the “sand.” Hold down the flippers for 10 seconds (to the count of 10).

For more information about the artists featured in this project and to learn more about the North Carolina Zoo and North Carolina’s endangered/at-risk species,
Waterworks Visual Arts Center continues our partnership with Rowan Salisbury public, private, independent and home schools to provide
the 5th Grade ARTstops program for the 2019-2020 school year.
Scheduled dates and ARTstops reminders are listed below.
**5th Grade Private, Independent and/or Home schools' classes should call to schedule their ARTstops.
5th Grade ARTstops are provided free of charge though the generosity of the
Margaret C. Woodson Foundation.
Please plan to arrive at your scheduled time, 9:30 am for the first session and 11:30 am for the second session. We are unable to accommodate early arrivals. Busses should drop students off at the front entrance of Waterworks. Drivers should reference the attached Parking Map to locate available parking.
The maximum number of students Waterworks can accommodate per ARTstop is 50; students will be divided into two groups or classes upon arrival at Waterworks.
Each ARTstop is 1.5 hours. The ARTstop includes a 45-minute docent lead tour of the professional galleries and art center, and a 45-minute hands-on art activity relating to the current exhibition. The art projects and tours meet the Common Core Curriculum course of study for visual arts education.
You will receive a confirmation email one week prior to your school’s scheduled ARTstop. Please respond promptly to confirm your attendance and exact number of students.
When inclement weather impacts the Rowan-Salisbury Schools; they are closed or delayed, the ARTstops for that day will be cancelled. Waterworks will contact the school to reschedule the ARTstops.
