Special one day project, student drew a portrait of their mother, grandmother or special person in their life...the frames are re-purposed from certificates.


Relief Mountain collage

This new project allows students to build texture and interest with tissue paper and then highlight their image and add details with watercolor paints and watercolor pencils . Very well received and positive results.
Connects well to 5th and 6th earth science standards. Also builds on understanding of a landscape, foreground, middle ground and background.
