To stay on the theme of Autumn, we drew leaves using the subject of the lines. In sixth grade classes, we have made the drawing of a large leaf in pencil, and we split it into many parts, drawing the ribs inside the leaf. The ribs were have been decorated with colored felt tip pens, with a series of curved and parallel lines. We created so an effect of fullness on the surface of our leaf. Around the central leaf we drew other parts of leaves, which “emerge” from the frame of the drawing.
For this activity, which lasts about an hour, we need:
colored felt tip pens

What a great shaope to use for exploring line and pattern. It would be a great activity for the start of the school year as every student could decorate a leaf with patterns and they could be added to a tree shape showing off the collaborative work of the whole school! Thanks for the inspiration!
Thank you Shell! The tree in a collaborative project is a great idea! 😉
