Foundation (Prep) students loved experimenting with the effects of texture wands and implements before choosing one to create the Autumn leaves on their textured tree.
These artworks took three lessons (though they could be done in two), but there were great art concepts for learning the elements of art along the way. One element was texture – the bark of the tree and the leaves themselves. The other element we looked at was colour, and specifically warm colours.
The full lesson plan with learning intentions, step by step activities, resources, and alignment to the FOUNDATION Victorian curriculum, and student examples is available in a Word Document.
