This is a lovely back to school project to inject some colour and pattern into your first bulletin board display. I found the lesson here on the Art Projects for Kids website.
You'll need: heavy white paper, sharpies, oil pastels, watercolours (we used liquid).
On heavy white paper, Grade 3 students drew a leaf with veins. Fill the page- nice and big!
Outline the leaf in Sharpie. Then fill in the leaf sections using different lines and patterns using oil pastel- press hard for the resist to work!
Draw concentric lines around the leaf with a white oil pastel.
Then paint everything using watercolours.
