I was inspired by Red Ted Art’s Blog to make fall tree paintings with the boys, and they turned out great! We did this project over two days. On the first day, we painted the sky, ground, and clouds. I took the boys outside to show them that the sky appears to go all the way down to the ground – there is not white space in between! We let the sky dry a little before adding some white clouds. Then we put the papers aside to dry.
On the second day, we added a construction paper tree, and then painted fall colored leaves on the tree and the ground.
On Red Ted Art, they made a tree for each season, and now they have a collection of four pictures. She used identical tree cut-outs each time, and they really look nice! I’m thinking we’ll be repeating this project in the winter, spring, and summer!
