Birch trees project

This colourful and interesting lesson is being carried out in memory of one of my most esteemed and inspiring art teachers, whose lessons were always dynamic and fun.... Mr Graham Woodall, who just loved trees and found inspiration in nature and saw the extraordinary in the ordinary.

During the first step, the children mixed colours with white to create different shades of colour. They proceeded by painting colourful and patterned circles in these colours they have just mixed up on their palette. These will serve as the background for our trees, which we will add next week.

Here's a sneak a peak of some of the colourful and moving backgrounds...
