Fall Trees

These beautiful fall trees were created by Georgetown second grade artists.  After reviewing warm and cool color schemes, they painted a warm tone watercolor wash for their background.

Second graders practiced drawing lots of trees until they got one “just right” to put on their background.  Both Mrs. Brouwer and our artists were surprised how difficult drawing a tree can be – but our awesome artists stuck with the challenge and produced some great trees.  It helped to view several art pieces that showed how other artists drew trees, and to examine the branches and tree trunks that these artists had drawn and painted.

I Can Goals:

* I can use warm colors to paint a watercolor wash
