Mixed Media Trees

3rd, 4th and 5th grade created a mixed media tree composition using water color paint, torn newspaper and sponged tempera paint. Each student was given a large piece of white paper. They first had to draw a rough outline of a tree trunk with roots. This was then filled in with torn strips of newspaper. Students added branches to their picture using thin strips of newspaper. Once the glue had dried, the trunk and branches were painted with brown water color paint. Next they had to paint the background. An evening sky was depicted using blue and purple. Grass was also painted around the base of the trunk using green water color paint. Finally, students added leaves using a sea sponge creating texture and dimension to their trees.
