Autumn tree



We decided to work on Autumn landscapes, trees and leaves, before we get busy with our winter topics and share a lesson with all art enthusiasts.
In this project we used our old paint brushes that have turned 'fluffy' after use. They do come in handy for creating textures and other effects.


We will need:
A cartridge sheet or any good drawing sheet A4 or A3 size.
A few autumn colored paints - poster or gouache
Medium size brushes and a few old brushes with fluffy bristles.

Fluffy bristles help in creating easy textures on trees etc.

Start by helping children draw the tree trunk and branches or print the tree drawing if it helps.


 Fill in the browns.

 Now go dab dab!! Start with green so it looks like greens turning into these lovely yellows and oranges.

 Gradually add the other colors - deep yellow, orange and red

 Let them add a few leaves dropping to the ground. Here I must add that children age groups 5 to 8 years enjoyed the whole painting exercise and were very excited about the results.
