Natural Art in the Woodland Garden

Year 2 were very excited to create some wonderful collages using natural materials found in the Woodland Garden but no glue or paper was to be seen anywhere! We carefully laid out our pictures and patterns made of twigs, leaves and other natural materials on the grass or in the outdoor classroom and took pictures using an iPad so that we can print them out to make a display. Our imaginations ran wild and our teachers were amazed by what we produced. We were pretty pleased with ourselves too and many of us concluded that we had surprised ourselves and really enjoyed this alternative type of artwork. We were excited to see an article about similar artwork in the National Geographic Kids magazine and Mrs W is thinking about submitting our pictures to the magazine as they are looking for examples to include. I wonder if you can guess what these creations are?
