Capturing Insects through Drawing & Sculpture

Visual Art & Science

Teaching Artist: Deborah Colotti

Grades 3-5
Max. number of students per class: 30

Via stories, students will learn that the insect and animal world can be a place where groups cooperate for the benefit of their communities. Students will see real, preserved insects up close while drawing a variety of insects, learning and labeling the anatomical parts. The first three lessons will focus on close observation and anatomy, while drawing, shading, and coloring insects on paper. During the next three lessons, students will create 3-dimensional insects, based on studied insect anatomy using found and upcycled objects.

Bringing artists into your classroom, each of LBC’s new arts integration residencies leads your students through six interactive sessions that combine an art form and another academic content area to delve deeper into learning.
