On Tuesday fourth grade followed in Miss Pemby's footprints and sketched in the Leap Area. We were looking at the external structure of Missouri plant life. Miss Pemby modeled the successes of being patient while sketching and paying close attention to the details of our subject. The students watched and listened to a video of Miss Pemby sketching paying attention to why she pays attention to the details closely and stays in place the entire time.
While the students worked sketching in graphite Miss Pemby used colored pencils to sketch alongside them. The students were able to see in person how an Artist pays attention to the color of plants outside.
The Fourth Grade teachers alongside Art Teachers at Lee Elementary contribute to this blog by sharing happenings in their individual classrooms.
