In preparation for Fall, students learned the basic skeleton of trees before going outside to see them in detail. After this warm-up, students painted the foliage in warm fall colors and created the branches by blowing out of a straw. I think some students may have blown too hard because a couple of them came up to me and said they were lightheaded! They happily continued their painting, but next time I'll warn them!
Hello! Welcome to my blog! I'm an art teacher at Manhattan Academy in Manhattan Beach, CA. My students range from pre-school through 5th grade. When I'm not teaching art, I'm having fun with my husband and toddler girl, and working on a children's book.
