That time of year

The first grade finished these pieces of work this week. For these artworks the student artists studied trees (roots, trunk,bark, crown, branches and leaves). They studied hot and cold colors. They learned why leaves change color. They learned what happens when you paint on wet paper and then hold it upright. They also learned about silhouettes. The artists also enjoyed the joke "why didn't the cat go near the tree?....It was afraid of the BARK!"
