Fourth grade students study plants as a major part of their curriculum. To reinforce what they are learning about plants we discussed the parts of a plant, or plants seed, and how they grow. They were then introduced to a unique plant called the “Koru”, and also the artwork of Raewyn Harris. They created watercolor paintings on professional watercolor paper in the style of Raewyn Harris. We reviewed watercolor techniques, and they also learned some new technique of shading and blending colors.
