The colors of Fall

This two part project was explored by my kinders and  mixed 1st/2nd special needs students. I have a great set of leaf rubbing plates we used  to create transfer prints working with cool crayon colors. We talked about color and how leaves change with the seasons, what are seasons and how seasons are not holidays.

Part II involved having the students selecting their most successful transfer rubbing and adding warm colors by painting with  liquid watercolors.
I used old certificate copy paper for this project
because I really liked the frame it provided for the the students.

This is a great lesson to connect to color theory, introduce new art vocabulary and build on skills.
