Observational Drawing - Corn
What do you see? Observational drawing is such good exercise in slowing down and becoming an active observer. It's about drawing corn not by how you remember it but rather how it really looks.
Your eyes will be dancing between your paper and the object you're drawing, looking at the different shapes, textures, and angles.
We observed and discussed how corn kernels come in different shapes & sizes and that the husk & silk are filled with different line patterns. We made this a multi sensory experience by husking the corn and tasting it. It was so sweet & crunchy!
Give it a try! You can start with something as simple as an orange or a can and jump-start the conversation by asking your little one what shapes they see. Are the shapes the same? Different? Do they connect?
