ART/WRITING
Water-Colored Leaves

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
From: Nibley, Utah
Date Submitted: April 12, 2001

During the fall, have your students collect leaves from outside. Place the leaves ON TOP of white paper. Take a set of watercolors and have your students paint on top of the leaf, working from the center of the leaf to the outside. Encourage them to be as sloppy as they want with this because you want the paint to extend beyond the edges of the leaf onto the white papers. Once finished, lift up and you will have a beautiful silhouette of the leaves. It also looks really neat to overlap the leaves as you paint each one with a different color. These make great displays for written work such as poetry. Have your student write their poems on the inside of the silhouettes.
