Falling Leaves by Third Grade

Another of my favorite fall art projects was completed by my third grade students. They used liquid watercolors, which gave the finished project a very vibrant look. First they traced leaf shaped onto their papers (12x18 white drawing paper). Then they traced over each leaf shape with a black crayon to create a wax border. Next, they painted each leaf with bright liquid watercolors. Finally, they painted in the background with turquoise liquid watercolor to create the sky area.

I love how they are bright, bold, and beautiful, and how they looks like someone just threw a handful of them in the air and now they are tumbling back down through the sky.

Check some out...
