Spring into Life, Still Life Drawing!

Today we went on a nature walk in our courtyard to find some wild flowers for a still life. We found/rescued  this little monarch caterpillar and gave him some milk weed to hang out on for a while so we could draw him before we placed him in our school garden.

  2. WOW!!! What stunning photographs!!! As soon as the weather gets a little nicer here in Northern Ontario, I'd like to do an activity similar to this. (My photos won't be quite as nice, though). ;)

  4. This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing websites that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free. It’s the old what goes around comes around routine. Did you acquired lots of links and I see lots of trackbacks??

  5. Great article, I appreciate the share, one thing, would you explain to me where you got this kind of theme? was it totally free or perhaps paid?

    Thanks

  6. Super late, but I think that plant is related to wild garlic. When they set seed they get a flower on top, and the curls are called "scapes". You can stir fry them, or make them into cooking wine.
