Wow did this project come together easier than I thought!

MATERIALS
9x12 Black Construction Paper
White Tempera Paint
Paintbrushes
Oils Pastels
Fall Leaves (freshly fallen, not crunchy)

We had a little powerpoint on leaves and their shapes. I passed out leaves to each table and we examined their shape and form. First I demonstrated how to paint the veiny backside of the leaves and then how to press them on the paper to leave a clear print. Then they got started.

I thought we'd have more blobby prints with too much paint. But they printed their leaves magnificently! We let them dry while I then demonstrated how to do the echo lines with the pastels.

We discussed drawing some echo lines in warm colors around certain leaves and then cool colors around other leaves. For the most part they got it.

But they all turned out pretty fabulous, don't you think?
