Bumble Bee, Humble Bee

IMG_0131

With the arrival of Spring, Veena Scialo and her older Pelham Art Club students dedicated this term to our brilliant bees and their plight for survival.

IMG_0132The older artists started off with a poly block printing plate, using hexagonal shapes to create an A3 sized honeycomb design.

For inspiration, everyone watched a little video to learn more about honey bees and their importance.  Then we worked on some designs for our prints.

IMG_0125IMG_0124Once we completed our honeycomb pattern we looked at the anatomy of bees and made several drawings which we cut out to stick on our prints.

IMG_0136To complete this project we made seed bombs out of clay, compost and seeds that when left in an outdoor environment will grow wildflowers for bees to enjoy.
