microscopic wonders

"Woah! What is THAT?" can be heard in the Art Room today.  We looked at many beautiful images of microscopic photography. Some are more obvious than others, but nearly all are awe inspiring!

Fifth and sixth graders selected an image to try to capture using oil and chalk pastels on large paper.  We acknowledged that much of this project might feel challenging as drawing something that is specific and precise but not figurative is something that we don't have a lot of experience with.  We also discussed how we can recognize the differences between chalk and oil pastels and use each of these mediums to achieve the desired results.
