Our 5th, 3rd, and 1st grade classes are focusing more and more on our Spring art show theme: the rainforest! 3rd graders began giant watercolor reproductions of jungle leaves. We began by sketching out our leaves and veins as large as we could with pencil, then traced with oil pastel. We then began painting our jungle leaves either warm colors or cool colors. We will then paint the background of our papers the opposite set of colors (ex: warm leaf, cool background). Stay tuned!
