Leaf Prints

1st and 2nd grade took advantage of the windy weather we’ve been having and the resulting late Fall! Leaves were in abundance, so what better than to use them for the first art project of 2014. Students spent the week creating frosty looking leaf prints, by painting the backs of leaves with white paint and then pressing them on to black paper. They used colored pencils to add subtle tones to the leaves. Finally, two contrasting colors were sponged around the leaves. A great way to use a natural resource. 🙂

About stephwheatley

Formerly from Britain, I have lived in the USA since 1989. My qualifications are in library science, but I've had a passion for all things artsy and crafty for as long as I can remember! I became the Primary Art Teacher at Shady Oak Christian School in 2009 and am thoroughly enjoying myself. I teach students at both Shady Oak Christian School and Shady Oak Primary School. It's wonderful to be able to share my passion at a place that believes in the importance of learning through creativity.
