Color Wheel Trees
I'm volunteering in my granddaughter's third grade class--here's the first art lesson of the year. It was my granddaughter's idea to have a color wheel tree with the primary and secondary color fruits. Last week we mixed colors and painted fruits for each color of a simplified color wheel. We then painted the trees with a thinned down brown tempera, so we could create the branches by blowing the paint with a straw. (We had a few dizzy kids!)
The next week we printed the leaves with a somewhat flattened and cross-sectioned cut up toilet paper tube dipped in green tempera...
Cut out the fruits to glue on...
Colored in a tiny color wheel to add to their artwork.
