Tropical Themes

Isn't she a beauty?  Fourth graders are looking at Henri Rousseau...I love his work, don't you?  We noticed how he loved visiting the botanical gardens and drawing from observation, so we tried it ourselves using houseplants we found around the school.  Then we used our imaginations to create something tropical.

We used sharpies to outline and markers to fill in with a bright and consistent color.

Plum Blossom Scrolls

These are self-explanatory, aren't they?  But the children loved making them and every one is enjoying the beautiful spring colors after this long, cold winter.
