Abstract Trees Grade 5

Interpretation of a tree, done with oil pastels on black paper. I showed students abstract trees by Piet Mondrian. I showed them how to draw organic shapes that remind us of trees, and discussed the meaning of abstract art. Much more fun than worksheets!

Still Life Collage- 4th Grade

We made these look 3-d by crumpling the paper. Fruit looks like it's falling off table to create tension, like Cezanne!
