kindergarten autumn leaves


More autumn leaves fluttering in the breeze! We are continuing our study of nature and color theory in kindergarten.



The kindergarten artists made leaf rubbings using multiple layers of warm crayon colors. These leaves were cut out and thoughtfully arranged on a painted abstract background of warm or cool colors.

I love how this leaf was meant to look like it's getting ready to blow right off of the paper!


We thought of the art of Alma Thomas but looked to other stories for inspiration as well. We read a beautiful fall/winter story, The Little Yellow Leaf by Carin Berger.



Our very own leaf man! We read Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert for inspiration too.

Leaves are such a great inspiration for any art project. I like to use leaves when talking about line, because we can tie in science and talk about the veins of the leaf, etc. Great visuals here! Keep it up!
