Winter landscapes with textured trees…

We have been busy creating various winter scenes in our art classroom. 
One project that was inspired by my good pal, Ginger, over at Paintbrush Rocket was this beautiful winter landscape.

Week 2
 
Students had to tear a piece of paper to represent horizontal snow then glued to bottom of their painting.

 Next, students created trees starting by tearing trunks 
then adding branches.

Next, students added delicate snow on the branches

    Just did this yesterday with my kinders… the painting part in the morning, and the trees in the afternoon. They loved it and they all look great! Thank you!

    I like the way paper was used to create the snow as popular renditions are always the intricate designs. When one sees snow on trees, it more closely resembles your paper design. Lovely!
