Tree Visual Arts Lesson for grades 6 to 12
Trees are everywhere in our environment and they are a great inspiration for art projects in almost any media. This lesson packet contains 2 lessons for sixth to twelfth grade learners. The sixth to seventh graders use oil pastel to make silhouette trees with a watercolor sky. In high school the students draw a realistic tree, and select a portion of the drawing to create an abstract finished product.
