|A gentle, swirling motion sets this composition of insect wings, abdomens and antennae apart! Read on to learn about how we created these gorgeous ink on fabric scrolls!|
Students were required to use the books to find a variety of body parts from different insects as well as natural objects from the habitats that the insects would live in. I asked them to draw a composition that combined these parts in an interesting way that included overlapping and considered how areas of light, medium and dark values would work together. They used a regular pencil to draw their composition and erasing was possible, but not that easy on the fabric.
