Fern on colour blend background with Rachel L's GG
Carrie's lesson 7-8 yr olds
We had already done some work on the colour wheel, so for the backgrounds of the calendar art, the children chose two primary colours and attempted all the colour blends between the two.
I had brought in some ferns to draw, and gave them a longer timeframe to do an observational drawing of this, focussing on enlarging the image and including small details. This was then cut out and stuck to their background art. Those that had time, added a bug or butterfly to the image.
