that artist woman: Dandelion Poetry Project. I love this idea, something that fifth graders could do at the end of the year, to display in their last weeks of school. http://www.thatartistwoman.org/2011/06/dandelion-poetry-project.html#
a faithful attempt: Leaf Prints with Sponged Background Colored pencil accents
printmaking lesson to 4th graders using leaves and white tempera paint. The vein side of the leaf was inked with a big brush and white paint. Composition and positive and negative space was emphasized. Some students used overlapping to create depth. The background was sponge painted with white and blue leaving black around the edges of the leaves to create contrast. Colored pencils were used to add color to the leaves.
Warm/Cool Study *I can create a composition showing movement and overlapping. *I can use warm and cool colors to create contrast. *I can base my artwork on realistic organic shapes found in nature.
