Drawing Nature

A couple of weeks ago, after our Spring Break, I decided to bring some plant cuttings to school.
I set up a drawing table.
I encouraged looking at the colours, shapes, size and lines of each plant.
 Magnifying glasses were provided if they wanted  a closer look.
Here are a few sketches.
The drawings were mounted on paper frames for others to appreciate.

Week two and it was time to replace the plant clippings, 
they were getting droopy and losing their colour.
I brought in flowering plants and added more variety of coloured pencils.
The drawing continues.
