Teaching Middle School has become one of my passions. Teaching 2 days a week keeps it that way!
Fall leaf water color resist.
This project is a study in observation (using real leaves chosen by the students), overlapping, warm and cool colors, contour line drawing, contrast, value and the technique of using oil crayon with watercolor to create a resist.
Hanging the first big art project of the year has certainly allowed the 5th grade to make this new space their own! Did I mention they will be able to show them off for Grandparent's Day tomorrow.!
You can probably tell that I am very proud of the joy, energy, individuality and creativity that went into each of these.
Way to go 5th graders and thank you Allison for helping matt and mount this show. I could not have done it without your expert help!
