As part of our unit titled Artists Observe, the Art One and Art Two students took part in Scientific Illustration day! How Exciting!
There were four areas that students could rotate through. The first table was the table of death! OK, that sounds terrible. But it was a table that contained things that were not living. Like the giant bull skull!
The next table was the table of Life! Most everything on that table was dead.. like the collection of bugs and butterflies.. but they used to be alive so.. ok, the turtle was alive!
The last two tables were the botanical table full of dangerous plants like the dreaded venus fly trap.. and the Process table where students drew things that moved and the process around how they moved.. like a blender.
All in all it wasn't a day about they draw, it was about what they saw... and illustrating that.
