Water Color Crayon Resist Leaf

Bridge and Kindergarten continued to explore the season of Fall by creating a multicolored masterpiece. A crayon resist, water-colored leaf. Students practiced drawing a large leaf on a piece of white paper. They were instructed to draw a diagonal line from one corner of the paper to the other. Next they were told to draw two wavy lines, one on either side of the diagonal line and encouraged to fill the space on their paper. After they had drawn their leaf shape, they then divided their leaf into sections. These sections represented the veins of the leaf. In each section students were asked to draw either lines or shapes. Once students were satisfied with their design they then copied it on to a piece of water color paper using crayons to draw their shapes and lines. Color was added with water color paints. The final result was a vibrant, multi-colored composition. 🙂
