We are continuing on with our art lessons using Artistic Pursuits. In this lesson, Miss M was tasked with drawing an object from nature. She chose to draw a starfish and a seashell.
After she had drawn her initial picture, I challenged her to examine them in closer detail using her magnifying glass. She then went back and added the small hairs onto the starfish legs.
The end result:
She is very excited for the next time we take a nature walk so she can practice her new skills in her nature journal.
