PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Giving a shout out to the great season of Autumn! I mean look at all the colors splashed among nature!

One project that I created with my second grade students was inspired by the Avenues of Poplars by Vincent Van Gogh. Yes my friends, you can teach one point perspective to young students and not pull out your hair!

As I said the inspiration was this delightful painting Vincent created in the fall. What he wrote to his brother Theo, "with yellow autumn leaves and the sun casting here and there", struck a chord in my heart. Vincent is really describing the beauty of Autumn and I wanted that beautiful description to be put down on paper.

This mixed media project uses oil pastels, tempera paints and chalks with painted paper scraps to create an adorable cottage in the woods.

Using 12" x 18" construction paper, students create a one point perspective drawing in pencil and add the layering of oil pastels, tempera paint and chalks. Large brushes create the overlapping leaves on the fall trees.

After the trees are created, the path and cottage complete the painting.

We displayed these with the delightful fox project you can find here in the shop.
