Art With Yvonne

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.

  1. Hi 3MT

    You are so lucky to be doing Art classes with Yvonne!

    I can see that using magnifying glasses is opening up a whole world of colour, patterns and shapes in nature that you might not have noticed before. I can see so many details you have discovered in your botanical sketches.

    I wonder what you are enjoying the most when you are doing this drawing with Yvonne?

    Happy sketching, reading and happy Book Week!!

    Miss Y 🙂

  2. Congratulations 3 MT on your fabulous concentration during your art lesson with Yvonne.
    Well done with the detail and presentation in your sketches.
    Mrs S
