Blow Painted Cherry Blossom Trees

Spring is upon us so what better way to celebrate the season than trying out a new technique to create a beautiful, blossoming tree!

There is something magical about blowing paint through a straw across a white piece of paper. The Kindergarten and Bridge students thought so too judging by the smiles on their faces and the ‘oohs and aahhs.’ Blobs of brown watery paint were dropped on to the bottom of each student’s paper. They were each given a straw and told to blow the paint across their paper. Once they were happy with the tree trunk shape and branches they had created, they then added blossoms with pink tissue paper. This is always a favorite project with the students as they discover they can create something wonderful without using traditional painting techniques.
