Artist Christine Elder with 7th grade students.Students in Trish Mihalek’s 7th grade science classroom at Hall Middle School worked with Mentor Artist Christine Elder to create a booklet on botanical illustration that correlated to their classroom unit on flowering plant life cycles. Students honed their observation skills while learning methods of realistic drawing and watercolor painting techniques. They learned about the ‘elements of art’ including concepts of line, shape, form, texture and color while creating their books. The booklets will be featured at the school’s Open House night this spring.
