Let’s Get Sketching!

Did you know that spring is a great time to draw outside?  I want you to look closely at some of the beautiful leaves and flowers that are popping out everywhere this time of year.  Artists build their drawing and observation skills through practice, practice, practice! This week I want you to find inspiring leaves and flowers and draw the details you see. I was inspired by one of my favorite nature illustrators, Beatrix Potter.  Do you have any of her books?  Look at her illustrations with your artist eyes, then get sketching!

I am St. Aloysius School's art teacher for grades K-8. It is a joy to bring art instruction to our students.
