Contemporary Evergreen Trees Mixed Media Collage


I found this pretty winter lesson HERE on the wonderful Dutch Art blog "Kids Artists". 

See my previous post of this lesson HERE.

I modified the lesson a bit- instead of using bleeding tissue for the trees, we created textured paper using salt sprinkled over liquid watercolours. This took one period.

Once dry, measure out a bunch of triangles for the trees.

Outline and add details with a gold or silver marker.

On a separate sheet, paint a sky with a snowy landscape. Add some falling snow in the sky if desired. Once dry, lay all the trees out and find a pleasing composition and glue down.

Some Grade 6 results!
