Plant Art: Botanical Illustrations

Year 3

Year 4


SKU: A34IL405002

Children find out what botanical illustrations are, and the original reasons for which they were created. They first look at the differences between these types of illustrations and other paintings of plants. Children then discuss how they can create detailed illustrations like these, by using constant observation, attention to detail, and patience. In their independent activities, they practise these skills by drawing sketches of leaves. In the alternative activity, the children create a class botanical diary of the plants in their school grounds or area.
