DRAWING BEETLES

Being able to break a process down into steps is something art teachers understand well. Knowing when to stop and start again later is important. I talked to these young students about how many legs an insect has, what an exoskeleton is and how the wings on a beetle are protected when not in use. We looked at photos of beautifully colored beetles.

In our work we drew first, then painted (watercolors). The last step was the dark lines that could be applied over the dried paint.
