Does anyone know of any good art ideas that link to the topic of plants and growing?
I would be really interested to hear of any ideas as l am doing the same unit. Had thought about linking it to Andy Goldsworthy and doing some Big Art pictures on the playground with twigs and leanes that we collect (all dead of course). Then we could do some close observational drawing and perhaps a collage.
Study Van gogh - do some artwork around 'sunflowers' painting - grow sunflowers
I remember doing an art unit on plants, with Y6. We went and collected leaves, berries, flowers etc (it was Autumn), made them into collages and took photographs of them. We also drew the collages and did some work with oil pastels with them.
Also did observational drawings of Amaryllis at different stages since they grow so quickly. We tied that in with looking at the artist, Georgia O'Keeffe - some amazing abstract flower paintings.
