A Touch of Autumn

The leaves have turned such beautiful shades of color and the children have taken notice of the vibrant colors of fall.  It was time to introduce a seasonal art project:

Watercolor leaves:  basket of maple leaf shapes; tray with watercolors,  pencil, jar, and brush; painting tray with small towel.
The student makes two trips to the shelf to set up the materials - once for the supply tray and once for the painting tray.  Then, the child fills the jar with water and begins filling in their leaf shape.  Once completed,  the leaf is brought to the drying rack and the child wipes the tray to prepare it for the next person.  The water is emptied and all materials are placed back on the shelf.

Autumn leaves.
