Artful Friday – Nests

April 29, 2011 | Comment2 comments - join the party! |

Spring is a great time for nest exploration. I have a lovely nest I use in my class room and let the little artists pass it around and give it a feel. We also read In my Nest by Sara Gillingham so that we could discuss how a nest is made and what its made of.

We started out sketching in pencil, and then moved into black charcoal to work on blending techniques. The background was finished doff in paint.

Just lovely.

Happy Weekend.

this post makes me happy, what pretty art. birds are definitley at the top of my "Favorite creatures" list. haha, but who can chose really? that's why i have to be generic and go for a whole kingdom rather than just one species 😉
