When browsing the stacks for primary literature about drawing and learning, we usually read articles written by faculty who study these topics. The voices of students participating in these studies are seldom heard. There might be a quote here or there and examples of student work, but that’s it.
Today I am happy to bring attention to an article that changes this. In the current issue of The STEAM Journal sixth-grade student Rudaba R. Hasan writes about the importance of visualizing science in Visualizing a Plant Cell. In this article about using art to learn about science, we learn how Hasan and fellow sixth-grade students turned an assignment to draw plant and animal cells into an engaging infographic using color, lively characters and informative text.
