Kindergarten through 5th Grade
Explore the connection between art and nature with this class pack! Students will learn all about Maria Sibylla Merian, a woman who was not only an incredible illustrator but a pioneering scientist, too. During a time when women weren't allowed into the scientific community, Merian was dedicated to studying insects and plants. Even more, she accurately and beautifully illustrated the objects she studied. Her work is still used by scientists today! With this art box, kids will create their own flower bouquet. Plus, they'll study Merian's work and dive into the history of botanical illustration.
This pack contains all of the supplies you'll need in order for 10 or more children to complete a fun mixed-media reproduction of Maria Merian's Plate CLXIX artwork. To give you a head start on prepping the lesson, a reproducible PDF tutorial will be emailed to you before the art box ships.Add to Cart $7.50/student. Minimum quantity of 10.
