Kindergarten and 1st Grade Leaf Paintings
For this project, the students worked with maple leaf tracers to trace 5 or more leaves onto a sheet of paper. They learned about cropping and how they can have some leaves appear to go off the page. They filled each leaf in with patterns created with different kinds of lines and/or shapes. When it came time to paint, the students learned about warm and cool colors. Since we wanted the leaves to look like autumn leaves and really pop of the page, we used warm colors to paint the leaves. Since we wanted the background to recede in space, we used cool colors.
