This art club project was inspired by this step-by-step instructional I found on Pinterest.
To be honest, I really thought these would be easier for the kids to do but the concept of tree branches turned out to be quite challenging.
We began by making a grid on 12×18 inch paper with a ruler. Next, students used a protractor or traced circles to create a circle on their paper. We talked about how tree branches are “V”s and students drew branches inside of the circles. They had a variety of media to choose from to color their design in — including sharpies, markers, colored pencils, and crayons. The colors and designs were completely up to the individual artists.
The colorful display in the hallway got lots of complements from students and faculty. Great job art club!
