Sketching the Sanctuary

The day was SOOOOO beautiful, we simply HAD to do something outside!  It was the perfect day to start our “Sketch Books” and discover the “Sanctuary”.  This lovely courtyard is right across from our own room.  It has a pond and waterfall, built by our PAC, with beautiful orange and white fish.  There are two trees and many plants, as well as a Mason Bee house.  Our class has 6 planters and we were lucky to see one acidanthera and one gladiola still in bloom from the summer!  Our first job was to sit back and sketch the Sanctuary as a whole.  Then we chose something to focus in on, and sketch a detailed close-up.  It was such a great way to appreciate nature!

  1. Classroom 2,

    Watching your video brought “sunshine” to my rainy Sunday.
    You are so lucky to have that beautiful Sanctuary.
    I used to love sitting on the steps and watching the fish in the pond. It was so peaceful and pleasing.

    Mrs. B. will provide you with many opportunities to appreciate “our world”.
