Summer leaves into Fall leaves

Kindergarten artists transform a lovely green (pre-cut, older student can use a leaf pattern to cut out their own base shape) summer leaf through the art of collage into a colorful fall leaf. Through this process students are introduced to the technique of paper tearing, over-lapping and how to use white glue (and keep it on the art work area or in the bowl). We use small plastic dishes of glue and inexpensive dollar tree brushes. I find sitting the bowls in coffee filters works well as a protective skirt helps with clean up. No scissors are used and each students can use a few pieces of gold shiny paper as an accent. This is handed out last.
