Power Outage!

 2 weeks ago the power was out for about an hour at school.  The one emergency light in my room was definitely not enough!  Changed plans and took the class to draw plants in the hallway.  Told them they could use up to 3 marker colors to make line drawings, talked about organic shapes and observational drawing, tried to get them to fill the space and maybe even have some overlapping lines.  I was stressed about the situation at first but it worked!


  1. They are beautiful! What a cool spontaneous project. I like the limited color palette.

  2. Great! I love kids doing observational drawing.
