Spring in Australia brings an abundance of our floral emblem, the Golden Wattle. My grade threes attempted still life drawing for the first time with jars of wattle cut from trees around the school. We used lead pencils and green and brown textas to draw the jars, stems and leaves onto white card. They then dabbed on yellow tempera paint with a small brush to try to create the fluffy texture of the flower. When complete, we carefully cut out the drawings and glued a heavy cardboard stand to the back to make our vases stand atop the bookcases. –Useyourcolouredpencilsblogspot
I love this blog, the inspiration is taken from elementary students artwork! Nothing brings me a sense of peace more than watching my girls creating art and enjoying the process. My daughter Anni and her friend Emily could paint, bead, draw and sew little projects for hours on end. They are imaginative little artist’s!
