Drawing Plants

This past Wednesday, I met with four classes of third graders at Van Etten elementary school in Van Etten, New York. We talked about the fact that both scientists and artists need to use their skills of observation in their work. We used pencil, colored pencil, and crayons to draw plant specimen that the students had brought in from home. These will be the designs for the clay tiles that they will be sculpting next Wednesday.

This project was made possible in part through a Local Capacity Building Grant administered by The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes.

  1. You might want to ask your students what kind of drawings they would make in the sky if they were flying and airplane trailing smoke behind them. You can check out my web site at: http://www.StephenPoleskie.com to see some of the things that I have done over the years. Unfortunately I no longer do this kind of work as I am considered too old to fly.airplanes. Maybe the kids will come up with some new Ideas. Airplanes should be used for peaceful activities, not war.
