Draw through a Magnifying Glass

Age Range: 11 - 16
By: Sadaf Suhail

Choose tiny objects from the park like a petal, leaf, pebble, a stem or piece of any junk.

Place these things in your palm. Give each student a magnifying glass and ask them to draw and shade this tiny composition on an A2 sheet of paper covering it from edge to edge with as much of detail as possible.

The end effect is very interesting and also helps to observe stuff in detail.

This is a great idea! Little kids like to look through magnifying glasses, and what they see is bound to spark their imaginations.

How can you make a a drawing by using a pane of glass and have the sun shine through on a piece of paper reflecting a tree from behind it? Sounds like a fun thing to do.
