Over the last three weeks, we have been lucky to work with Yvonne our artist in residence. We have learned so much about artists and their skill in botanical drawings. Artists used to sketch plants in their ‘artists’ diary and often used latin names when labelling their drawings. There was a lot of detail in their books.
We also took on the role of the artist. Yvonne brought in seeds, nuts, branches and leaves for us to observe. The magnifying glasses helped us to discover the wonderful detail in the seeds and nuts. We set to work and have begun to put together our own artists’ books. We are looking forward to more fantastic art lessons with Yvonne.
