Twenty kids in class today! This girl did a fine job on her very organic shapes and I love the colors.

The kids spent about 15 minutes in the garden creating little sketches of shapes based on the plants. Sixteen kids in class today. It was was of those great 'moments' when the kids really looked at the details in the garden--the leaf shapes, the tiny flowers, never-before-noticed ground cover.
The bottom image: is a series of doodles based on nature. I chose two of the shapes (outlined darker), then traced and cut out those shapes from stiff paper (they are on the table at the left). Middle pic: is the repeated shapes, outlined in marker. Top pic: finished piece, painted with watercolor.
