The Leaf Art Challenge!

The Leaf Art Challenge!

Hi
Today I came across this fascinating book by Arvind Gupta - Leaf Zoo.
Here is the link: http://www.arvindguptatoys.com/arvindgupta/leafzoo-he.pdf

I made a poster using the images from the book. You can print this on A4/A3 and inspire your peers to participate.

All you need is to collect some leaves from outside which are already fallen, clean it and then explore different shapes and figures! It will also be fun if someone can make a leaf story and share :slight_smile:

@Harshad suggested an interesting challenge. How about we make the leaf art of various model organisms studied in CUBE? I wonder how would leaf Moina, rotifer, earthworm, butterfly, fruitflies, etc would look like! Eager to see those!

Here is the baby dino I am working on… can you guess the name?

Updates (6 Nov’19) - current version of dino

Looking forward to the STEMGames community to participate in this creative leaf challenge and share your creations( artifacts) and stories here !

How about using crooked leaves as well in making the art? One can try rolling the leaves, crumbling them or twisting them as well just as paper!
