2nd grade

With the beginning of fall, students read a book, "Fletcher and the falling leaves", and created an interpretation of their own tree with it's falling leaves. Students created a crayon resist windy background by watercolor painting, then applied oil pastel, liberally and spontaneously to create a tree with autumn color falling leaves. Students applied their knowledge of color blending in the creation of their tree. When the artwork was completed. students wrote a poem describing their tree, the leaves or their feelings of the fall/autumn season.
