Here in Ohio it’s almost fall. That’s when a spectacular display of color takes over for a week or two. I love connecting the beauty of nature to the arts- it’s so easy! Nature just offers so many color,s textures, and details to appreciate. This easy leaf art for kids uses free printable leaf templates and chalk pastels to create deceivingly complex layers of colorful leaves!
Is there any project that brings back childhood memories like cutting paper snowflakes? We’ve all done it. This project starts with simple cut snowflakes and turns them into an easy snowflake drawing finished with chalk & glue.
This leaf drawing is a great introduction to drawing. Leaves are everywhere, the variety of shapes is fantastic, and the colors…oh my! Learn how to draw a leaf with a few simple drawing exercises and then experiment with a glue outlined chalk drawing of a leaf.
Taking old materials and bringing new life to them is one of the most exciting parts of being an art teacher. This wet chalk drawing process does juts that. Take the dirty stubs of chalk, add some water and check out the bright colors that are hiding underneath!
