Autumn Landscapes

For the past 2 weeks my first graders have been exploring the element of space.  They created autumn oil pastel resist landscapes.  The students organized their landscapes by using a horizon line and we discussed foreground and background.  They were suppose to put at least one tree in the background and at least one in the foreground.  I taught the students how to make "Y tree" which is when they draw branches on their trees instead of a lolly pop tree (which is just a trunk with a big circle on top that is suppose to look like leaves).  The students drew the trees with oil pastels and the next week painted over them with watercolors.
