A masterpiece isn’t created the first time around – artists have to constantly reflect on and improve their work before they present their final product. In this activity, you will create a scientific drawing of a leaf, taking time to reflect on your process step by step, and improve your art bit by bit.
This is a good activity for kids to complete independently.
