In the post, I’ll walk you through the steps of drawing an iconic mid-century plant step-by-step. I have a student who LOVES monstera plants. I was with her a few months ago for a mentorship program and I asked her if she wanted to help me create a step-by-step lesson on how to draw a monstera plant.
Of course, she said yes! Making this lesson was a lot of fun, and we hope your students will love doing it as much as we did!
I love the visual interest of using a variety of mediums like colored pencils, crayons, and markers together. If you only want to use one medium to complete this project, it will still look gorgeous in the end. If you don’t have any colors, shading your monstera in with pencil will still give a great result. Use what you have on hand and do what works best for you and your children.
Some children might find it helpful to be reminded that it’s okay to turn their paper around as they work instead of trying to draw upside-down hearts. It also helps to press lightly with the pencil during this step since some parts of these lines will be erased later.
If you decide to post photos online of your students’ artwork, please be sure to tag @artwithjennyk on your favorite social media accounts so I can see what your students created!
