Winter Evergreen Tree Paintings


This is a charming winter landscape painting lesson that I saw on Art with Mrs. H's Instagram HERE.
We have a lot of snow here where I live in Canada- yes, in March!!

Grade 4-6 students started by painting a watercolour sky. That took one class.


Next class, I demonstrated how to paint an evergreen tree using black tempera. I encouraged Grade 5,6 student to paint two trees; Grade 4 students only had to paint one. 

Once that layer dried, they layered on gray paint. 


The final layer was white tempera.
Some added snow in the sky afterwards.


I mounted these onto coloured construction paper, then added a gold glitter border using white glue.


I love how these turned out!
