We have had a buzy, beautiful spring in the studio.
We took advantage of the beautiful weather to draw, paint and collage about tulips in the garden.
The following week we started our tissue paper impressionist inspired gardens.
Students tore yellow, greens, lilac and blue into strips and leaf shapes, then collaged them onto canvas with acrylic gloss medium. Starting with blue and yellow colors and building layers to create backgrounds and middle grounds.
On day 2, students cut dark green stems and leaves and created their flowers.
This is a great project for all ages. Students learn brush control, building layers, composition, observational skills and everyone makes something beautiful!
