Winter Trees, 3rd Grade

These beatiful winter trees were created by my third graders. I found this wonderful lesson idea on Elementary Artists, which is a blog I recently discovered through Pinterest.

This is a very simple lesson. I began by teaching my students to draw a "Y" tree. Students then chose three colors. These three colors were used to color the trunk and the branches. Lastly, students used a Q-tip to paint snow. I just LOVE these!

  1. These turned out beautifully! They're almost abstract in a way with their angular branches. Thanks for sharing!
