Insects and mini beasts as an art project


Students were asked to explore the garden. Carefully rocks were lifted to observe who might be living there. Bushes were parted slightly to get a good look inside them and a few beautiful, colourful spiders paid us a surprise visit. Each student was required to paint one of the mini-beasts observed in the garden. They were then required to research what it was. Identifying insects was the highlight of this art project much to our surprise. Insect books were a favourite but the Internet was used as well... back to art projects
