First Class Room 8: Our Tree-rific Art

As we entered our last month of Autumn we noticed that leaves were EVERYWHERE, so what better than to turn the fallen leaves in to artwork.

In room 8 we spent a long time learning how to draw a detailed tree. We used a video from YouTube to help us with this. It was very difficult so we practiced first.

Once we were happy with our drawing we then coloured in the background using oil pastels. (Did you know: Oil pastels give a better coverage compared to crayons).


To finish off, we stuck some leaves on to our tree and created an autumnal tree. Have a look at some of our finished work by clicking here.
