What better way to bring in the fall than some leaf (or line) studies? I was inspired by the "How to draw a Maple Leaf" lesson from the blog http://www.artprojectsforkids.org/
This project was very simple and perfect for a busy week of assemblies (since I am at 3 school each one has an assembly on a different day). Students followed a guided drawing and then colored them in using fall colored crayons. On second inspection the top leaf inspired me to include this lesson in my line unit. I can turn the veins of the leaf into many different types of lines....I will save that one for next year!
