First graders learned all about color mixing, shapes, texture, and stamping for this project. We began by doing carousel painting with tints and shades of green and orange.
The next week, students created a purple background by mixing blue and pink. They used a fork to scratch texture into the wet paint.
That did not take up the entire 45 minute block so we were also able to start tracing and cutting circles from the tints and shades papers.
The last day, we assembled everything together. Students overlapped their circles and glued them down with just a dot of liquid glue.
Then, they used cardboard and marker caps to dip and stamp tree trunks, branches, and snow!
These are so sweet!
Great job first graders!
