Organic and Free-form Shapes With Kinder and First

An IB Central Idea that we've been working with is Nature Can Inspire Creativity.
We've thought about how nature has inspired artists throughout time.  From the first cave dwellers drawings of animals to African sculptures with depictions of nature, as well as now when we create art.  When we look at nature, we see that it lends itself perfectly to organic and free-form shapes.
