kindergarten patterns/textured trees

This project was done almost at the end of our second quarter. Oh how they have improved since the beginning of the year! We viewed many photos of different kinds of trees and discussed the texture and patterns. 
We drew a horizon line and then I instructed them on how to draw trees and branches. We drew in pencil first and then they traced over the trees with a permanent marker. 

Next they drew with a permanent marker patterns on the trees. They used construction paper crayons to color in the patterns. I had to remind them to only color the patterns. They would be painting the trees, sky and ground with watercolors. 

This took them about four, fifty minute class periods to complete. 

They really enjoyed the lesson.
