Third Graders completed their line review with observation drawings from nature. After examining the detailed drawings of Albrecht Durer, third graders were excited to create their own drawings from nature by looking at loads of leaves, dried flowers and branches from Mrs. Brouwer’s garden. I learned later from my students that they were studying plants in their classroom – so our art project became a great tie-in to their classroom curriculum. I love it when those connections happen!
The final step in this project was to add some color by printing leaves – we painted leaves with tempera paint and pressed them onto our drawings.
