We started these by drawing two lines down the sides of our page for the trees and a line to connect as the horizon. Students traced their lines in sharpie then coloured the tree trunks with a brown crayon. Students were given small square tissue paper in a variety of colors, glue, and a pencil crayon. They wrapped the tissue around the bottom of their pencil crayon, dipped it in glue, then attached the tissue to the paper. Once they were satisfied with the amount of leaves on their tree, they used watercolor to paint the sky blue and the grass green.
