Leaf Paintings in Tints and Shades

 
This lesson was inspired by the leaf paintings featured here at Paul J. Gelinas Junior High School.
My grade 4 students created our version of these paintings by drawing a large outline of a leaf on their page using pencil. They then divided the shape using one central line and then used lines to create smaller areas of shape. 
Students were then asked to choose one colour paint of their choice as well as black and white and then painted the divided areas using as many tints and shades of their chosen colour as they could mix. Once painted they used a thick black marker to retrace all their lines before cutting out their leaf and gluing to black card. I love the way these turned out, they remind me of stained glass windows.

  2. Wow, what an amazing use of colored pencils. I will definitely try this at home! Just imagining grade 4 students made this with a wonderful sense of color shading and toning boggles my mind! I will surely use my colored pencils!
