Scientific Drawings and Prints

Multiagers learned how to draw like scientists: up-close, with extreme attention to detail, and with less emphasis on making an artistic version of what they see.  They learned that scientific drawings are means to capture the object in front of them exactly as they see it – if it has a bite mark in the leaf, they drew it. They first did drawings of leaves, and then mushrooms, then transferred them onto printing foam. After printing both, they added them onto a watercolor and oil pastel resist background.
