Grade four students created non-continuous line drawings in order to capture the journey of a whole number of leaves from branches (outside of the picture plane) to rest in the pile of leaves below. After creating directional line stories with marker, the students then used water colour to add the leaves…sticking with the journey that each individual line had taken. I think these turned out wonderfully and displayed them before I left the school. Time required one hour and a half.
I loved words. I love to sing them and speak them and even now, I must admit, I have fallen into the joy of writing them. Anne Rice
