Fall Reflections - 1st grade

A first graders Fall Reflection art project.

Fall Reflections

We are cutting on the line.
 Art Project Objective and Steps:
*Students were to create a reflective landscape including trees using the mono print method of fall colors with tempera paint.
*Students were to learn/review about the fall colors.

Step 1:  Students folded their paper in half horizontally.
Step 2: We added a line of green tempera paint and "sandwiched" our paper together to create the reflection of land on the lower part of the paper.
Step 3:  We added five tree trunks with brown crayon on the land and also below reflecting in the water.
Step 4: Ms. Victoria came around to each student and added a squirt of red, orange and yellow tempera paint to the top of their tree trunks.  Students then "sandwiched" their paper in half and did a gentle rubbing to spread out the paint.
Step 5: After the paint was dry, students were asked to create a sailboat that was put into the water on another sheet of paper.
Step 6:  Students cut their colored sailboats out and glued them into the water.
Step 7:  We added additional blue to the water with a crayon by rubbing it on its side.
Step 8:  Students added a sun and clouds to the sky with a crayon and also its reflection.

Adding our sailboats to our art!
