Aspen Trees

January 15, 2011

This idea came from artsonia.com.  My family visited Steamboat Springs, Colorado over the Christmas break and I had a chance to observe the aspen trees amidst the winter snow.  I brought back postcards of these beautiful Colorado trees and showed them to the kids.  We completed this lesson in two sessions, working on the tissue paper background first and then adding the markings and shadows to the trees.    Well done, fifth graders!
