After a record HOT HOT HOT year in North Texas, our winter has been mild. I have only done one winter lesson. As a native Hoosier, I miss the winter tree lessons I grew up with. Here is my version thanks to Snowflake Bentley. !
This is a multi media lesson that takes about 4 class periods. I begin by reading, " Camile and the Sunflowers." We make a symmetrical vase the first day with a 4in square paper. I use china markers to trace and copy the pattern on the folded paper. We create a background with crayon, texture plates and water color. We then follow by drawing at least three different points of view sunflowers after viewing real( silk) sunflowers. We trace these with china marker. We follow up by painting one flower, using oil pastel on one and marker on the third. Any other flowers they make are FREE Choice. We cut and assemble the last day!! [gallery columns="2"]
