Re: [teacherartexchange] Outdoor art lessons

I have taken students outside for years with nothing but paper, hard drawing
surface, and a dixie cup full of ink. To draw they must use whatever they
can find. Twigs for drawing tree trunks. Dandilions make great brushes for
dabbing leaves. I always have them draw nature, and then we go back inside
and "finish" them with pencil. They turn out beautiful!

Does anyone have some tried and true lessons that can be taught
outdoors? The sixth grade students are going to our local woods/nature
center. I thought I would do God's eyes with natural yarns and sticks
found there. Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.
