Hanging on to fall

Almost all the leaves are gone from the trees in our area.  Third grade students hung on to a bit of the fall beauty with leaf prints today.  First several leaves were stenciled onto a page creating a contour of the leaf.  Immediately, more leaves were printed overlapping the first group by using watercolors.  The prints are striking on their own but students suggested we extend the project by turning them into tree compositions next week.  I'll post new photos next week to fill you in on how they turn out.  For now, I really love these!
The vein work is beautiful on this one

Heavier paint made a a more solid print
the viens on this one are beautiful too!

This student chose to only use red for the texture printing

The composition is so interesting and flowing
