Delicate Branch Still Life
Our children are very interested in art and drawing. We introduced artist sketchbooks today and invited the children to contribute a piece of art to these communal collections. We considered providing one book per child but liked the sense of community and respect for one another's work that might be created if we used shared books.
The children carefully noted what they saw - delicate, deep red buds, emerging leaves, and gentle branches.
The children worked in quiet consideration and each drew a unique representation of their interpretation of the branches.
Tomorrow we will offer the children a new artifact to observe and draw.
