Fall Trees

Students used branches of trees as a source of inspiration. They used markers to create hatching and cross hatching to give the illusion of bark on a tree. The backgrounds were painted with pastels.

Harvest Drawings

Using their photography still life images as a source of inspiration, students used oil pastels to make a contour line drawing. They painted their composition with watercolors and used chalk pastels to show highlights and shadows.

Photography... looking at COMPOSITION

Third and Fourth graders discussed what goes into making an interesting composition, looked at a power point, and took digital photographs to inspire their "harvest drawings".
