Thanks for visiting!
LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT I acknowledge, with deep respect, that I am gathered on Treaty 7 territory. I acknowledge the many First Nations, M├ętis and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for generations. I recognize the land as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on or are visiting.

Watercolour Leaves with resist


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.
