Birch trees: art lesson for elementary kids. I love the final product. I would hang that in my house!

like the newspaper birch trees ...also a great way to have non-cookie-cutter with different birds

Students used 9 x 24" colored paper and three colors of tempera paint to make their backgrounds. We used mat board to spread the paint. They sprinkled the paint before "pulling" the paint, making sure not to mix all the colors together. The birch tree was made with the same mat board piece and black tempera. We stamped the sides on white paper, and then pulled the black paint horizontally to create the bark. Once dry, it was glued onto the background and branches were draw with black marker.

Paper, Paint, Glue COLLAGE!!! So glad to see this. Need some inspiration for my Sketchbook Tour sketchbook.

Paper covered with tempera, set aside to dry, and then black and white tempera used to add different kinds of lines.
