After the painted paper week - check out our link here -1st grade artist got busy collaging.
They used their knowledge of shapes to create painted paper landscapes.
They first learned that every landscape has a foreground, middleground, and background.
After creating the background and middleground, students selected
2 different shapes to create trees in the foreground.
They chose between circles, squares, and ovals.
Finally, they returned to printmaking to add tree trunks, branches, and patterns.
How do you think they turned out?
