Art Projects for November:

An Apple Tree in Fall:  Students create a large fall tree.  They use warm fall colors to create the fall leaves and color the tree trunk blended shades of brown.  They learn about landscape drawing and draw their tree on a horizon line, a basic perspective technique

A Fall Tree:
  Students use the previous lesson to draw a tree, remembering to include a horizon line.  They color the drawing with crayons but leave the leaf section of the tree empty.  They glue onto the tree small pieces of fall colored tissue paper to give the illusion of multicolored fall leaves.

A Thanksgiving Drawing:
  Students color a composition of Pilgrims and Indians using the correct historical colors they wore.  They remember the rules of coloring, outline with your crayon and color in one direction.
