Beatrix Potter



Because March is Women’s History month my classes all were introduced to a different woman artist.


Grade three learned about Beatrix Potter and her water color illustrations of animals. They learned that she was also a sheep farmer, preservationist and business woman.


They could use watercolor, colored pencils, sharpie or any combination of those and could choose to do any of her animas or one of their own anthropomorphic animals.


They all chose Peter Rabbit. Probably because it is spring time.

  1. Beatrix Potter – such an intriguing artist and writer. My great aunt gave me pretty much all of BP’s books as Christmas and birthday presents. I love the format, the stories and the illustrations. My favourite was/is The Tale of Mr Tod because the protagonists, Mr Tod and Mr Brock, are so unlikeable. Bit like True Detective before tv or the internet. : )
