leafy filters

This is the second month of school and we focus on fall. For our art I was excited using liquid watercolors and coffee filters. The coffee filters were cut in leaf shapes and students were given leaf colors green/yellow/red & orange. They used different combinations of these colors to come up with a fall leaf effect. The coffee filter was a good medium for color mixing. The paint spread fast creating new colors which the students loved.
After doing their art leaves the students wanted to keep on painting and we ended up doing freestyle watercoloring which they loved.
