Butterflies and Moths

Working on the butterfly paintings. We started with the background and then sketched templates on construction paper (just like you used to do to cut out hearts by folding a piece of paper in half and drawing half a heart and then cutting it out and having a perfectly symmetrical heart) we folded our construction paper and sketched out half a butterfly (or moth) and then cut it out. When we opened the paper we had a symmetrical outline for our paintings. We traced around our patterns and then painted in the details.
