Here we are - off an our first art adventure - sketch books in hand (or on head!).
Then we were off to do our own sketching, spending time looking at the intricacies of the things in front of us.
What a calming thing to do... to study the fine details of a flower, a leaf, or a frog's eye. :) I found that when I was sketching, there was a part of my brain that wanted to hurry, and there was another part that told me to SLOW DOWN. A great skill to learn, even for (maybe especially for) us adults!
We also reflected on how each leaf and individual flower is different, and has its own beauty and imperfections.
Just like us.
