This tree is a sample of what the 5th graders are working on. The spiral trees, as I like to call them, have been a many-step process. The design of the tree was drawn with pencil first. The spirals were drawn with crayon, oil pastel, and construction paper following that. Then, the big tree was painting with black tempera. This week, we added the lovely watercolor to fill in the majority of the paper. The final step will be a surprise to students next week!
Check out the AMAZING results of the after school artists!
These paintings were created by 3rd - 6th graders :)
