I came up with this little art project when I was looking for something to do as an art lesson and came across a massive amount of tissue paper in the art room. Sometimes inspiration comes from what is available! This was a great lesson that we used to introduce the idea of colour tone to our classes. The idea that the sky has a variety of blues was something that the students could relate to once they were shown pictures of various skyscapes. These skyscapes are made with tissue paper. The children cut pieces of blue tissue paper and glued them to a white piece of paper from darkest to lightest. We then glued our tissue trees on top. Mrs. Urdang and I trimmed the sides and laminated them.
