For this part of The Tree Project we looked at the work of the English painter David Hockney.
We discussed the use of color, scale, and texture in his work.
Creating a mixed media composition, using Paper Mache , crayons, water colors and acrylics.
Using shades of green for the foliage.
Student comment: "I made a willow tree."
The student painted the brunches we collected from our nature trail, and glued them on the paper.
She used pastels and water colors to complete the composition.
It took a lot of patience to attach the paper leaves on the brunches.
Play dough and water colors were used for this composition.
