- Leaf Examples

For Art Club today we made a thankful collage (or at least attempted, we ran out of time to completely finish).

1. Mod podge tissue onto watercolor paper. You can ask your students to do a specific color theme (ex. warm, cool, monochromatic, primary colors, etc.) or use all colors!

2. Using the leaf hand outs as samples, draw leaves about the size of your hand-ish.

3. I showed how to fill in the leaves with what you are thankful for three separate ways: 1. linearly, 2. in a spiral around the outline of the leaf or randomly, or 3. to fill in the leaf with one word.

4. Glue onto construction paper and cut out a border around leaf.

5. Glue onto mod podged background.

  1. Hey Hannah, will you send me the link to your pinterest boards? Maybe I can figure it out...maybe!
