1st grade students are in the midst of a unit on realistic drawing. They are studying 19th century French artist Rosa Bonheur, who was famous for her paintings of animals. See the gallery below for the students' works in progress and images of their close observation of the shapes and lines on various animals. Rosa Bonheur's Ploughing in Nevers, is pictured on the right.
