Today, we will make a beautiful fish from plasticine. Unfortunately, you can’t eat it, but you can decorate your room with it. Fish is also traditionally part of the Rosh Hashanah meal, for it is a traditional symbol of fertility and prosperity. During this art lesson, you will need various colours of plasticine or play doh.
1. First, we will make a torso of the fish. Roll a small ball from blue plasticine.
2. Then flatten the ball with the palm of your hand and flip on the other side.
3. With the tip of your fingers, gently raise the edges from both sides.
4. Now make a top fin. You will need 3 small pieces of dark blue or purple plasticine. Using a toothpick attach the top fin to the body of the fish.
5. Now take yellow plasticine and make a bottom fin.

6. Then, add an orange fin on top of the yellow one.
7. With the help of a toothpick make an indent for the mouth. Later, using pink plasticine, create heart-shaped lips. Attach the lips to the body.
8. Now, using white and black plasticine assemble an eye.
9. Our fish is almost ready! We just need to add scales. Make a small green ball and flatten it. Add this resulted circle to the body. Now, create many of these circles and decorate your fish with beautiful and colourful scales.
Instead of circles, you may create stripes or any other unique designs. Art is a soul’s expression. Imagine, inspire, innovate!
Happy Jewish New Year to all young readers and their parents!
Curly Orli and I wish you a year full of happiness and joy!
