Birch trees-

Birch trees- 3rd, originally uploaded by paintedpaper.

Just thought I would post one of my favorite projects for fall. This one is so easy and bright and cheerful.
1. Students dipped a piece of cardboard in paint than dragged the piece sideways to create the trunks.
2. Students took analogous colors and painted the tops of the trees.
3 Lastly, Students took a piece of chalk and shaded in the background trying not to cover the trees. This took 2-40 minute classes.

    I used a Popsicle stick but it does seem to work well. The tree trunks are more grey then white and black stripes… how did you get the awesome black stripes?
